Definitely a hot hike in the summer as most of the trail is in sun. On a hot summer day, the reflective heat from the canyon walls and the river can easily overheat your body. Make sure to bring lots of water.

Great trail, especially the beginning part! Lost the trail at one point and went a slightly different way, but still good.

This was a good hike. Lots of manzanita and one little fern grotto we passed through. Did the loop counter clockwise so walked down the steep incline others had talked about going up. I can see where it would be hot in the summer. Recommend for cooler weather.

Great hike. Beautiful trail. Hated. Hated the very end with a switch back 1/2 mile uphill. I made it! And glad I hiked that trail

Nice hike but there are lots of other trails it runs into so it can be confusing. Would definitely do this trail again!

Easy, not moderate
Steep climb going back to the highway, but short so not so bad
Secluded enough that it didn't feel crowded even with some folks on the trail
Nice views from above, small creek crossings along the way, so so waterfall
Decent hike so giving this 3⭐
