Beautiful scenery, many places to stop alongside the river and put your feet in the cold water. Good workout, and a way less crowded alternative to Hanging Lake (unless you like hiking with a herd of people). IMHO the views and river were just as pretty and more enjoyable in solitude.

This is a great waterfall river trail.
Parking completely sucks but there is a beautiful rest area at no name, but this trail is weird because there is a home at the start, but don't be fooled the trail goes passed the house. The river makes everything around it lush and green, easy to stay cool close to the river. Awesome camping spots. A consistent low incline but totally freak worth it.

Lovely trail along the river... though, quite overgrown in areas. We actually continued past the trails end as shown on the app. There is no sign marking the end of the trail. We went as far as a bridge over the waterfalls ... glad we did. Not sure, though where the trail actually ends.

Please if go and park at trail head be considerate only four cars there left no room for anyone else!! When left six fit good with two big trucks!! Not that bad hiking up from rest area except with two dogs and pavement really hot on way back

This is a gorgeous scenic trail! The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because stretches of the trail are very overgrown. Closer to 1500ft elevation gain. Parking near the trailhead is sparse (room for 5-7 cars), had to park closer to I-70 and hike up to the trailhead.
