Too many people and they withhold nature from you by saying you can’t swim.

Love this place to go hiking. It's a good medium trail to hike and I particularly like this trail during the winter.

This area is awesome. the trails have been rerouted through the years to reclaim certain areas. They are also destroying a lot of land to build their buildings and tourist attractions. to fund these new attractions and buildings, they are constantly ticketing for things like; dogs off leash, hiking off trail, swimming. the "enforcers" at this park are not respectful. while this is a strip of a longer hiking trail, this particular area has been taken over as a tourist attraction. not a hiking experience. Also there are no trash cans SO PICK UP YOUR TRASH. PACK IN, PACK OUT.

The campsite we stayed at had a trail that lead to Old Man's Cave so we decided that would be where our journey would start. We traveled downhill and through a small construction site where the new Visitors Center is being built and headed for the cave. It was like stepping into another world as the trail transitioned from dense forest to an open rocky gorge with running waterfalls and sandy pools. The stone bridges and steps that twist and turn through the gorge were fantastical. I had high expectations but these were quickly surpassed by the views and cliff faces.
