Loved it but if you call climbing steps is easy? Then easy it is. Me not so much

A lovely, easy hike with a satisfying (little) waterfall at the end. Overpriced, unfortunately, hence 4 stars instead of 5.

Good trail to do with a six year old. Don’t forget the last hike in is at 330 pm and you must be out of the gate by 5 pm to avoid fees.

I loved the hike. It is a tranquil and scenic hike that leads you to a waterfall. There are a lot of hummingbirds in the area. It is worth the trip and price.

Wide Trail and elevation climbs are spread out. Waterfall was a fun treat.

Great super easy hike. I like to take visitors from out of town here. Awesome when the waterfall is flowing huge..went yesterday with my dad and still some decent water flow..nothing raging and water levels around pool area super low..best to go in late spring when all snow has melted off San Jacinto Peak. Still beautiful though. I’ve run into rattle snakes here in summer time. Disappointed to see people leaving their trash along trail...people are just so disrespectful.
Pack it in and out folks!! The sign even says so!!

Very pretty. Recommend doing in morning for more shade. Just to be clear...it's $12 PER PERSON! Don't forget photo ID if you plan on using a credit card...we saw people turned away for a $24 charge.

Beautiful rock formations, hummingbirds and delicate lizards.
November 14, Waterfall still flowing.

Great little trail with beautiful waterfall at the end. Costs $12.50 per person, but worth it if you are in the area. Includes a guided tour covering flora and history of the canyon. I enjoyed the tour!

$12.50 to hike. Nice waterfall/creek but too short of a hike for $

It was a nice shaded hike and not too hot. You do have to pay to hike so if you are looking for a free hike don’t come here.
