Spectacular path passing many waterfalls, winding through old-growth forests, and along the edges of cliffs. Mild falling hazard in spots, keep the kids and dogs close, but it is family friendly. Some of the ledges have been blasted and offer great views of the canyon below.

The trail was beautiful and not too challenging; however, there isn't safe location to look directly at the waterfall. It was still worth the short trek though!

This is a beautiful trail everywhere you go! Just wish the sign to turn down to Punchbowl Falls was marked more clearly

Great Hike! Simple, easy, pretty straight forward though I feel the lower falls is more fun because you can play around in the water and chill. While the upper falls is this tiny little platform (even though it's a great view) you can't cliff jump :(

Got up early to avoid the crowds - something I'd strongly recommend as by the time we were returning to the car at 10am the lot was packed and the trail just as crowded.

The trail itself was a wonderful mix of terrain, climbing past cliffs with support chains, and a fantastic payoff and the end of what is a rather straightforward hike.
