This short loop drops into a slot canyon surrounded by large stands of hemlock and oak forests. Half way through you walk under a massive rock house and on your way back out pass by a nice waterfall.

Short scenic hike along a creek that has carved out very cool rock formations and caves. Well maintained trail.

Love this trail. Best to go a couple of days after a good rain so the waterfalls are at their peak. Easy hike and great scenery though the entire hike.

Great place for young kids that like to explore. Multiple waterfalls. Most of the trail is shaded too. With little ones (and even big ones) you'll want to remember to bring extra clothes for the car ride home as they will probably get a little wet and muddy.

This trail has beautiful scenery and is a great hike. The trail is marked well but there are trees across in a couple of places however they are easy to get over or around. There are two loops off the trail also. One of them above the waterfall that circles back to the parking area, the other circles up to the cave and bluff. It takes less than two hours to hike the trail and both loops.

Went on a spring hike, no ticks except when we left the gorge and went to the powerlines. I recommend staying in the valley
