Great forest trail.. End point is 1/2 mile by the road from trail head. Very well marked with silver disks nailed to trees above head level..

Moderately easy trail with some stretches of incline. No dramatic vistas. Would not recommend this trail unless you were planning on climbing the walls and boulders nearby. Still a pleasant hike on a beautiful day.

very enjoyable. we took the east to west loop. first part of trail each way was gravel.at the top the trail thinned out, one small stretch was a little dicey but, overall, an easy trail. We didn't see any waterfalls.

Nice trail. Recent wildfire, so not much new growth yet. Still enjoyed the hike though.

Great hike, but I went to the wrong location courtesy of this app. Not the right directions!!!

Very nice variety! A couple of nice waterfalls!!! Enough trails to choose how long you want your hike to be. Did 4.2 miles and it took 2 hours, but we stopped for a lunch and different pictures on the way. Altogether great spot to hike!
