Good hike with great views! If you're lucky you'll have some Bald Eagles overhead or flying below the ledges. Passed a few other hikers, but otherwise empty midday on a Wednesday.

Great views, waterfall, rock designs. Downside, be on the lookout for rattlesnakes!! No joke. Hike in is up all the way and rocky. Good chance of seeing bald eagles up there.

The map here doesn't cover the entire length of the trail; it ends arbitrarily. I'm not sure how much more there is but some other hikers we encountered suggested it was substantial. Having just followed the route here, we saw neither a waterfall nor ledges. A good vigorous climb at the beginning and a pretty creek at the top of the hill were highlights.
