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

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.

This was a quaint little hike. We got to the neighborhood before the trailhead around 8:30, the parking lot was already full so we parked in the neighborhood. The entire hike was very green (thanks to the recent rain), shaded and had a pretty steady incline the whole way. The waterfall was flowing and very beautiful although not one of the most dramatic ones I have seen. Overall, we really enjoyed the hike for its relative seclusion in comparison to some of the other hikes in the area and had a very local feel with everyone being welcoming and respectful. I am a big proponent of quietly enjoying nature and that was what we found here. We would definitely go again!
