Relatively easy trail, in great shape, clearly beaten into the landscape...so blazes basically don’t matter. Only real elevation gain that you really feel is getting up to the Devil’s Oven, which is a pretty cool cave system. My dog loved the riverside portion of the trail. He took advantage of every opportunity to splash into the water where he could. The falls were flowing, and the stream was moving pretty strong as well.

This is a nice open trail that has elevation enough to get your heart rate up as well as water views to calm your inner self. It is great for dogs as well. Some areas are muddy so be careful when crossing. There are logs and rocks to help cross. Don’t forget to check out the waterfall. It’s beautiful.

We took the Orange trail and it was a fun hike. A little muddy at some parts and a bit of rocky climb towards the end of the loop. The trail is well marked. Definitely will do it again.

Great trails, but very heavily crowded; including multiple large groups of People operating remote control cars. If you’re heading out for peace and quiet this is not the spot. For a fun hike with a beautiful waterfall this is a great spot.

Definitely not for beginners, a lot of very sleep, unstable rocky areas. The views were incredible, though, even in winter.

Great hike, but people need to leash their dogs! Tired of stopping and going with my dog because other people don’t have their multiple dogs leashes

HikingGreat!

Trail starts along river, then crosses Boulder field before mounting to scenic overlook. Definitely moderate to challenging hiking in some sections but worth the climb to the overlook!

Good hike. Lots of uneven areas and I saw lots of people carrying babies. I feel as though that would be scary but to each there own. Great overlook!
