Beautiful waterfall. Very short hike. Came with my little sisters ages 9 & 12.

Loved this hike. It was a bit muddy but the moisture allows for tons of wild mushrooms. The waterfall hike was shirt so we took the park trail which was an entirely different ecosystem but equally as beautiful.

Beautiful. Horse thief falls is a lovely way to end pancake rock trail. I was so happy to see not a piece of littler along the trails. Respectful hikers with their dogs.

Challenging at first, but the trail evens out and leads you to a beautiful waterfall!

Found this great little hike for the family. It was the perfect distance for my two and five year old with a fun waterfall to explore at the end.

This trail was beautiful but some places were a little steep for young kids. The waterfalls were not as big or glorious as Helen Hunt Falls, but it was gorgeous nonetheless. I'm looking forward to hiking to the Pancake Rocks! (Which is the same place but 2 miles down an adjoining trail.)
