This is a really hard trail, a lot of rock scrambling, and the rocks are BIG!!! Trail gets a bit lost on the way out. Didn't see the waterfall at they end, yet...

There were a lot of people on the trail when we went in May 2017 but we were fine with it because the trail wasn't marked well and we were following locals. Went early in the morning as it got hot quickly. There will be no water at the falls if there has not been significant rainfall or melting snow. Lots of large boulders and some maneuvering up and over slick rock. Lots of fun and beautiful views!

Lots of large rocks to climb over at certain points of the trail so make sure you have good shoes. Sadly, there was no water when we went but the view was nice anyway.

Nice hike, pretty canyon. If there is runoff there is a scenic waterfall. CLARIFICATION NEEDED - in several books, and even in the posted signs at the park there is confusion - some places indicate this is a 2.5 mile round trip hike, some say it is 2.5 one-way. Don't be taken by surprise, since it is 2.5 one-way out and back!!

Absolutely loved this trail, for a 2.5 mile dish trail it takes a bit of time with some of the obstacles to get over but is an awesome challenge and a great view/picnic spot at the end. Would recommend for more experienced individuals as a lot of the second half was more like rock climbing and certain points!

I loved it! I'm not as fit but was able to finish the trail. Definitely not a hard trail. We got to the end and didn't go up because we didn't have the right shoes , so if you plan to go all the way up bring the right equipment.

Easy going at first then lots of climbing over boulders, etc. Waterfall at the end was only a trickle at this point in the season. Might go in March next year to try to see it with more water.

Definitely an enjoyable hike. The first mile is fairly easy, but after that lots of rocks and boulders of all sizes. There are a few spots where you may need a helping hand to climb up and over or down from the larger boulders, if there's not an alternate path. On this hike the waterfall was pretty much dried up with the exception of a small trickle, but it was still worth the effort to see. Bring an ample supply of water, The parking lot and restrooms are across the street from the trailhead. Enjoy your hike and the views.
