Beautiful views. Very difficult to navigate at first, but as soon as we found the trail it was an easy hike. Great for dogs and kids.

Beautiful views. Parking was confusing because it looked like a driveway so we parked on the road a ways down which made the bugs even worse. But we found the parking on our way back.

Hiked the trail today. Trashy at the bottom. Better as you ascend. Extremely buggy. Swallowed a few till I learned to breathe through my nose! Take a netted hat covering with you just in case.

There are two trail path. I took the one to the left of the sign. This trail is relatively easy to moderately difficulty but a very enjoyable hike. There are slippery granite areas. Be sure to bring shoes with good tread. Also consider shoes for your dog to protect his paws too. The water was nice and refreshing so bring your suit. Beware of people sun bathing in their birthday suit. Despite the gnats it was enjoy hike. Will come again.

The gnats, flies, and mosquitos are awful right now, (mid August). We almost turned around and went back because they were attacking us so bad, even with a lot of bug spray! The entire trail was swamped with them. We did not have this issues when we came earlier this year in June.
