Very pretty waterfall, and a very good place to take a visitor from out of town to see some beautiful views. Not a hike at all. Chaotic crowd and limited parking, as to be expected.

We parked at the West Alluvial Fan parking lot and were able to cross over to the east side. Nice short hike with sounds of rushing water. Nice water fall and great picture opportunity.

The walk to the falls is too short and the little climbing there is it is dangerous

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!!!
