This is a great trail. There are no vistas but the opportunity to walk behind two waterfalls is just as good. They weren't large falls but still nice to see. Pretty well maintained but there are a few downed trees you have to negotiate over or under. I had to barrel roll over one.

Very nice hike with wonderful scenery. There were two large waterfalls (20+ feet high), and the cascades at the bottom were beautiful. I did a little bouldering at the bottom, there are some gigantic rocks there! Be careful though, I fell in the creek!!!

This was our first time on this trail and we only went about halfway. Really enjoyed walking along the cliff face and being close to the rock formations starting at the very beginning of the trail. The trail sign has been removed and we accidentally started on the other side of the stream until we realized our mistake. The trailhead starts right at the gravel turn off.

This was also our first time to use this app which was very helpful and accurate in finding the pull off at the trailhead. Because we had set it to "Record" mode I was able to see pretty quickly that we were off the trail. Using this feature we were able to find the trail and get back on track.

One of the best hikes around here. A little more physically demanding but very rewarding hike.

Awesome trail and only minutes from my house. Moderate strenuous trail with some steep up and downs, but over all a great trail for most weekend hikers. The trail has recently been cleared of most of the downed trees and brush. There are two decent seasonal waterfalls that the trail pass under and don't miss the cascades near the river.
