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.

Awesome hike, lots of fun. Go all the way through the trail if you're okay with climbing steep rocks and dirt.
