Beautiful trail except for the random garbage...
:-(
Next time I'm bringing a trash bag to haul it out.

beautiful hike. lots of shade and plenty of places to pull over and sit for a bit. plenty of water everywhere. climbing over rocks through the river. got to the bowls and there were lots of people having fun jumping in the water.

park before the actual parking lot. you have to walk about 10 minutes to the parking lot but it gets packed a lot.

The directions take you through a road made for off road vehicles. I would recommend taking the 173 to Kuffel Canyon to Hook Creek Road or type in Deep Creek into maps instead of using the directions from the app.

Great hike. Take bug spray. Beautiful views and clearly marked trail. Would definitely hike again.

We forgot to get the day pass but didn't get a ticket.

Awesome trail with great views that is not heavily populated. Be aware, a parking pass is needed or you will receive a hefty ticket. We picked up an annual pass at the local grocery store for $30. It's valid at all trailheads in all major parks. So worth it. A daily pass is available too.

As usual we ended up off trail and hiking along the water which proved difficult in some areas with 3 dogs but they loved the water and adventure. We did lose our leashes somewhere by the water which made it a fucken nightmare getting back to the car since we didn't make the rocky road to the parking lot and left our car back by the trail sign. Someone along the way back said they saw a girl pickup the leashes but we never found them. Walking that curvy ass road carrying one dog and trying to keep the other two close by for cars was a bitch. The bigger bitch is whoever picked up our leashes and took them :(
