Good for kids and dogs as long as neither are prone to jump in rapids. Beautiful hike. Partial shade. Moderately trafficked.

This is a beautiful little hike. Started at 6pm. Ran, hiked, it. The falls are about 1/4 mile past the wooden bridge. Take the left fork. I was too busy trying to catch my sun that I went the wrong way for a bit. Anyway beautiful view of a decent sized waterfall. Ran, hiked it back up. Pretty steep and invigorating. Oh ya, 85% shaded so perfect for a hot summer afternoon.

Nice moderate hike - shade throughout, stream by your side and ends in a waterfall. Towards the end it gets a bit steep. Even though trailhead says 2.8mi, I recorded 2.4mi. Can get a little confusing when you get to the top but don't go any further after the climb up the rocks. The water fall is right there, hidden from view.

Enjoyed this trail, but I think we didn't quite make it to the falls.

Great hike! Down hill most of the way in is great but that means uphill all the way out. From the bridge to the falls is not too far but the last little bit is quite rocky and steep. I would say 8 and older for a hike like this. Lots of water right now and beautiful.

Clear trail till you get down to the falls. Then became a little questionable on safety.
