We'll be going back to try again! Unfortunately it started raining when we were about half way up. Would have kept going but it was a downpour. Nice and shady, gradual incline.

Beautiful waterfall at the top. Trail was nice and shady most of the way. Great weather right now to do this hike. Lots of people on the trail. Lots of dogs off leash.

Fabulous hike of about two and a half hours. Mostly uphill but shouldn't be a problem for anyone in reasonable shape.
