Hike is ok. I thought Salt Creek Falls were great but Diamond Creek didn't compare. Forest is lovely on the way to falls. I used Skin So Soft bug spray and had no issues with skeeters. Finding the trail was difficult. You have to use the paved trail to the left of bathrooms and continue past picnic area to bridge over creek. That's the first place I saw a sign marking the trail.

Nice easy hike with some great views. Was ruined a little bit by the swarms of mosquitoes. We used bug spray liberally and were still attacked by the swarms.
Still a really nice hike. Well maintained trail.

Hiked to the bottom of Salt Creek Falls. A lot of loose rocks so be careful. It was well worth it. The view at the bottom was amazing!

The hike itself is great, but there are way too many mosquitoes. We tried to go all the way to Vivian Lake and had to turn around because the dog already had 20+ visable bites. I would not advise taking dogs, but spray did the trick for me. Really great views and a nice trail.

I started this hike at 6 PM Wednesday, July 5 and literally did not encounter another person on the trail the entire time! This made it so much more enjoyable truly getting out in the wilderness and the falls were phenomenal. Amazing vistas on the return leg past Diamond Creek Falls and Lower Diamond Creek Falls. My new favorite evening hike.
