We visited this short & easy trail on a beautiful fall day. The parking was very convenient (an entire lot), which we appreciated. Since it was in the middle of the area, it was thoughtful of them to do that.

The trail itself wasn't too difficult. The waterfall comes pretty quickly once you start the trail. That part was very serene and we enjoyed it. The rest of the trail is a loop. Because it hasn't been raining much, the creek part was a little underwhelming, but I'm sure once there is more water it's great.

One of the main reasons for not giving the trail 4 stars was because of the lack of signage. There were small wooden pointers to tell you what trail you were going toward, but no colored markers to keep you on track.

Overall, this trail is good for a quick hike that includes a nice waterfall not too far from the city.
