I’d recommend this train but keeping your GPS on because the blue markings sometimes point you in a different direction. But very good. Carried 20lb 1yo entire time in hiking backpack

GPS got 3.1 for this trail. Went mid day on a weekday and the waterfall part was very crowded. Very nice trail once you get away from the crowds and noise of people screaming. Blend of rocky parts, flat dirt paths, and switchbacks

This was a really nice trail. Some parts aren't marked very well, but it doesn't take a lot to figure it out. It connects with other trails, so use your trail map tracker to stay on the right path.
