Great hike a lot to explore and found some rock climbing routs if your a climber. You can take a few connection trails too.

Did this trail as a loop from Tunnel Road entrance, up east of 7 falls, and down through the connector to the top of this trail. The WHOLE time we were in fog, so we didn't get any views really, but it was still really fun, not very challenging, and a good loop.

I love this hike! It's not super difficult and the scenery is lovely, with lots of creek crossings and great photo ops.

Just completed this trail. It's a very nice trail, most of it is in the shade. A few switchbacks are along the trail, there is also several side trails. This trail has lots of side and alternate, most of them come back to the original trail though. The connector trail is just past the meadow, it's labeled with a metal sign. The connector is rather steep. It connects into the tunnel trail. Which has great views.
