Love this trail. I've hiked it more times than I can count, and it's always great. You can walk straight to the waterfall and back and the trail is perfectly flat and easy for trail rates strollers. That makes the trail much shorter, though.

Nice hike for kids or those who only want a short hike. Best time to come is during or right after a long rain storm. Lots of areas to explore off the main trail.

the "waterfall" was dried up. but there was caves on the other side of the park that was fun.

One of my favorites. To see the waterfall you should hike it in the late Spring, early Summer or after a period of rainy weather for the area. Very easy trail, strollers can be taken on it.
