If your looking for huge crowds, littered trails, inexperienced hikers that cut switchbacks.... this might be enjoyable for you.

Great views! Some rock scrambling to keep it interesting! Yellow and white trails were less crowded than the red trail. The waterfall was a NICE surprise! Highly recommend this hike. Almost 9 miles with the water tower.
