Enjoyed the scenes, loved getting to cross over the stream lots and a few Rock scrambles makes it exciting! View of the falls is best seen from higher ground, but there's not an easy way to get that view.

I really liked this trail! Great for a new hiker, not too easy but not strenuous at all! Lots of shade along the way after the first mile or so. The scramble up the rocks was not too bad, I imagined sliding down on my butt going back but it was suprisingly easy on the way back! Lots of water crossing, fairly easy over rocks and trees. There isn't much to see at the end unfortunately. Tons of parking and porta potty. GO EARLY! We arrived at 830am on Saturday and there were 3 cars in the lot. We didn't see many others on the trail although when we left at about 11am the lot was FULL and the line to pay was probably 40 cars long! It was New Years weekend so that might be why, but it gets hot so it's a good idea to get there early anyway. It was $9 per person to get in the reservation. There are many trails and they will give you a map at the entrance. Have fun!

Awesome little in and out trail. Wife is literally 9 months preggers and crushed it. Took about 45 minutes to get to the “sketchy” part. Not bad tho. Beautiful scenery.

You follow a stream up the canyon, essentially walking through an oasis most of the time.

Great trail hike with kid. We didn't go all the way because the trail because too steep, high and narrow, but it was still worth it! Water along the entire trail, lot's of places to go to the water and rest. half direct sun and half shade. Great!

A perfect way to kick off 2021. I stayed at the falls to relax and take a small dip into the water, and it was perfect.

HikingGreat!

Did hike on Sunday, 12/27/2020 with my son and his girlfriend. Weather was great for hiking. Not that many people on the trail so it made it even more enjoyable. There are many creeks to cross, so be prepared! There is a part on the way up that is a little scary, not for the faint at heart, and I think there are some people that may turn around because of that, especially if you have children with you, but we climbed, stooped under rock, held on tight to some, and made our way up to the top. We proceeded to the waterfall. However before you get to the actual Seven Sisters Waterfall, there is an “only authorized personnel beyond this point” sign that warns hikers that they are not to proceed further. But if you dare to do that (access is a little tenuous), you will see the waterfall. That’s an accomplishment. Just remember there are horses that use the same trail, so beware. Nothing major, but just a note. I would definitely recommend this hike.

Hiking

This is a fun hike for most anyone. The last 1/2 mile is a little tough for inexperienced hikers and can be hard to traverse since there’s a cliff to one side where people who aren’t careful may get too close to the edge. I will say that it’s a shame that the hike ends before the actual waterfall. I suggest you go past the warning sign to the end if no one is watching. Don’t really want to suggest you do something “illegal”, but it’s a bit of a travesty that they don’t use some of the entry fees to make it easy to get to the final waterfall which is spectacular.

So glad I brought my walking stick. Beautiful place with some challenging climbing that surprised me. But totally doable with patience!

The trail was nice. Plenty of shade and fairly easy. A couple steep areas as you approach the falls. There was only one small waterfall this time of year so it wasn’t too thrilling but I still enjoyed the hike.

Would have given 5 stars but trail can be overrun by caravans of horses. Impossible to pass and you get stuck behind a horses butt while it kicks up dust for stretches of time

Too many people on horses. The dust, horse feces and stench was very unpleasant. Heard a growl of a mountain lion in a bush so turned around and went back. No ranger so could not report
