The North entrance to the trailhead was a little difficult to find (to the left of the playground, down the hill and past the park bench) and there are many cut through trails that you can use to shorten the trip or access the trail which made it kind of confusing on the first lap. However after that it was simple and one could easily just take off jogging and not be lost. The waterfall is absolutely beautiful. Great place to have a picnic, sit and study or just relax and listen. Trail is short enough to make multiple laps in a visit and long enough to make it interesting. Will definitely be back. Great trip for before/after work jogs.

This was a good hike for kids because it was short and sweet but there are signs posted around the water stating that you shouldn't swim due to pollution. So at the same time, not great for kids because you know most kids want to swim.

This is probably a lovely nature walk and swimming hole for families, but I wouldn't suggest it for anyone looking for a real hike. Not terrible, but a little disappointing. Looks better in the photos!

There were several paved and unpaved trails to hike on. The trails are a little confusing though because there are no signs or trail markers to guide you. The river is beautiful and it's fun to climb the rocks and take pictures. There is a little beach to hang out on, however you are not suppose to swim in the river due to pollution that can make the water toxic. There is a big playground at the front and a huge field to play games on for little kids.

Definitely a very short and very easy hike, but it was fun to do with friends. It wasn't super warm on the day we went, but we still got out feet in the water some. It doesn't recommend swimming but the waster was surprisingly very clean and I probably would have swam in it if it had been warmer. The hike is to your left past the volleyball court when you get there, and it paved a good bit of the way. Not strenuous at all, good for all ages, and nice, wide falls at the bottom and fun rivers.

It's okay. Easy trail. Wouldn't walk it alone. Looks as though work is in progress so it may be worth another visit in the future.

Good place for families with small children, not for any hikers wanting to actually hike and see a view. Once you park you can already see the falls and all of the paths are paved.

I was not impressed. There was garbage and random clothing/swim floaties all along the falls and water. Tons of wasps and bees. We didn't even bother walking the trail because 6 people had gotten stung that day just walking by the neat at the base of the trail. The water was pretty though. Oh and someone with a badge came to tell us that there were Water Moccasins (yes venomous) near the water
