Very busy and a very wide trail for the first 1.5 miles with dirt bikes, mountain bikes, dogs etc. After that it turns into a great hiking trail with great views and great scenery! Parking was limited as well. Worth your time!

Great Trail. Lot's of cool rock formations and a beautiful view of the canyon. The water in the falls was flowing strong in early October. A little difficult to find the trailhead.

A lot of fun up some steep parts. Then trail running back down is a blast!

Very foggy day but going through the mountain was amazing. Streams and little waterfalls along the way make for a beautiful hike. It's moderate for sure but in some places towards the end could be considered a little hard. Totally worth the trek. The actual falls are anticlimatic compared to the walk up there. Very slippery at top so be careful! Only negative is parking is limited and there are no signs in parking lot to tell you which way to go to get to the trailhead. Friendly hikers helped us find it.

Make sure you go all the way to the top. when you see the sign that says .2 miles to st Mary's falls, keep going up until you see a second sign for falls that says 500 ft. I saw lots of people turn around after the first sign. what a waste.
