Very fun, watch for muddy areas and rocks. The views are priceless and the trail is amazing. It can be hard to stay on trail, but it is never too far away and easy to jump right back on

Another great hike for kids. Plenty to look at on the way. Saw a rattlesnake on the trail one time. Very rare.

Nice trail, went in late June water wasn't running. Not a lot of shade recommend going early in the morning. Great for all kids it's easy, trail is kinda over grown

In the summer of 1980 I backpacked into this canyon and saw no other people, but lots of wildlife. As I was relaxing in my hammock I heard a large animal splash into and swim in the pool below the first waterfall. I started to bang some pans together and cough. Looking at the rocks above the waterfall I saw the tail and rear end of a medium sized mountain lion heading back upstream.

Nice hike tonfirst waterfall and back. The cold water in the pools felt great on a warm day.
