Great for kids. My daughters always love this hike because it has several hidden trails. It used to be a quiet place, but more tourists are coming for the selfies.

My 4 year old loved this trail and the last boulder strewn stretch to the waterfall had a nice payoff. She still talks about it as her “desert home”

I love the park and wanted an easy, short trail with items of interest along the way, thought this one would fit the bill. The trail is well marked most of the way, coming across the wash and approaching the waterfall were two notable exceptions. Much rock scrambling. I did not see any petroglyphs, glad we later saw plenty in Valley of Fire.

Loved it! A truly beautiful hike!!

Good amount of water flowing, made for a fun time. The waterfall was awesome.

We didn’t do a loop just walked on one trailed straight to the fall and walked right back, not sure if it’s really a loop. Overall it was great but yes it’s apparently not marked well because I missed the loop apparently

Did this amazing and easy hike some years back i think it was 2013-2014. Back than the grapes vines were young and new planted. Did not get to see the full flow waterfall but the spring water was refreshing. Filled my water bottle and no filters back than. Gotta start again.

beautiful scenery, but not well marked. We never found the falls. There are a few petroglyphs and a really pretty bridge. Did this hike with two kids ages 5 and 7. This was their first hiking experience. They did well.

Very easy. Trail not well marked, easy to lose the trail but so close to the road it’s almost impossible to get too lost. Still fun and it was a beautiful day out

Nice easy trail for young children. We did it at the beginning of august and there was just enough water coming down the falls to cool off in.

This trail, although enjoyable, was not marked well which caused a bit of confusion. We went off -trail a number of times, but finished well.

This trail is great if you're just starting out. Lots of stuff to look at and there's also seasonal falls.

Hiked with my 21 month old and 2 month old - the toddler needed to be carried over certain parts but she absolutely loved it.

This is an easy trail even for children. It highlights much of the flora of Red Rock and shows the presence of past inhabitants (Native Americans) with pictographs and modern-day visitors who are idiots who try to add their own "pictographs" named graffiti.
