Beautiful Hike. The waterfall made the hike even more rewarding. Maybe because of the cooler temperatures, the trail was not too crowded and I was able to pace myself and stop to take several pictures and videos! Lovely day, Lovely hike.

Great hike during the week. It’s very crowded on the weekends because of it’s near proximity to town. A nice, moderately challenging hike. Don’t do it after a rainstorm or in the spring-very muddy!
