Marked great! Came out by waterfall (no water now) to avoid all the people going back up the stairs.

Nature tripsGreat!

A lot of fun unmarked trails. But the trails that are marked are great.

Definite moderate to hard trail IMO. Waterfall was dry but lots to explore and we walked up the 385 steps on the opposite side of the falls trail. Great workout!

It was a nice trail. A bit uneasy only because of loose rocks . Other than that it had great veiws. Along with some a little challenging areas to make it interesting

Beautiful trail, so many cool things to look at. Also gave us a little bit of a workout! My only complaint is that the trails were very poorly marked. We had a difficult time going exactly where we wanted to go!

Great trail and totally unexpected from the looks of the trail head! Rocky cliff side and lake side hike with great views of the lake! Steep sections.... but with caution totally doable with a packed baby.
