Beautifully lush. A bit muddy in spots due to rain the night prior. Overall, a wonderful loop.

Great trail. Touch of scrambling when you cross a creek but the rest of the trail is solid. Well marked.

A beautiful trail along the stream. I got off trailer a few times but the trail was generally well marked. Because I went after a couple of days of heavy rain, the trail was muddy in most places and I had to cross the stream multiple times but it was a fun hike with a good pair waterproof boots. Also I hiked 2-4 pm on Friday and it was quite crowded.

Day 12(?) of quarantine. Little sprinkle of rain. Mom and dad came along. Nice temp. Overcast.

This was an awesome hike. First time back on a trail in a good while. Took my retriever puppy and she loved it. Challenging enough but peaceful at the same time. Waterfalls made for a very nice finishing touch ha

Went out today on trail and was pretty good. We did do the trail in reverse so the falls were the last thing we saw. There are a lot of people biking on this trail though so watch out. Not all the bike riders were willing to give a heads up they were coming, which is difficult when you have two kids and a dog in tow. There were also a great deal of people walking with their dogs, they were all on leash and very nice. Overall I was amazed how many people were out on the trail even the day after the holidays, so i can only guess how busy it must get the rest of the year.

Perfect difficulty level with a nice variety of terrain for a shorter trail.

Beautiful hike with wild flowers and waterfalls but marking are confusing. Be sure to follow AllTrails map. Watch for mountain bikers.
