We parked on the east side and went off the trail and climbed up the hills. We took off our shoes and crossed the falls stream and that was possibly the highlight of this hike. We hiked up the west side hills. Amazing views!!!

Awesome! We loved it, and the kids could have played all day. Only one fell in - and it wasn't a kid. Get there!!!

Awesome! Recommend parking on the west side for an easier boulder scramble to the top. East side was tough but 8yo made it.

constant bouldering/rock scramble makes this lots of fun, as of 7/17 the east side offers a longer though more difficult climb.

Good large rocks for kids to play around and on.
