Waterfall was flowing with the recent rain. You have to jump the creek and down climb a cliff to get a clear view.

It was a beautiful hike! Didn't find the waterfall. If your looking for it you need to go the Delta way not through Gateway!! My dogs loved it!

Was VERY disappointed that there was NO waterfall any where near our hiking trail and we hiked 5 miles in. The picture is very deceiving so if your hiking this trail based on its photo, don't. There are beautiful views, however no waterfall.

stunning and fun throughout! so much to see the miles just fly by! my 8 year old stayed in good spirits and entertained for our 8 mile day. We will definitely be doing this hike again!!

Fairly easy trail to hike. Great views. There is a ton of area to explore so a hike can vary in length. The area is home to desert big horn also.
