Surprises at every turn! We took a forked trip to hike the two canyons. One was short, almost too short but in retrospect a way to start experiencing the alive canyons with the spider webs hanging from branches to rocks and filtering the sunlight. Or the pleasant surprised of seeing a small rattle snake on the concrete walkway out of the forest. The early morning hike gave a morning dew filtered light with the coolness of the damp ground. Refreshing. The mushrooms and the rocks with the little meadows, and the water falls as well as the creeks provided a sense of wonderment. $5 parking fee

Beautiful little hike (great for kids/dogs) you could avoid paying the $5/$6 fee if you do the quick hike from the neighborhood at the bottom...I was excited to see how clean this trail was (how sad right) and the waterfall was smaller than I expected, but still just beautiful. love this hike

We went on Monday Memorial Day. The parking situation was very limited and had to find street parking, but no costs on the street. The trail was very narrow if there was any oncoming hikers one party would have to stop as others pass. There were almost too many people to enjoy probably due to the holiday weekend and the one waterfall at the end was too crowded. Only stayed for about 5 minutes and left. Under the tree lined areas, it was very pretty and green with little creeks on the way up. Overall, we give this trail three stars.
