Great hike! Combined the South Wall Trail with the Split Rock Creek trail.

Three separate hikes in this park. All are fairly easy but very picturesque. One could easily spend hours on the bank of this creek fishing and relaxing.

"Hiked" this in the fall. The best views are really from the bridge, it's a short walk though, so you might as well spend a half hour on it. Devil's Gulch hike is about a mile north of this trail and is pretty neat too.

Did the hike in winter. Enjoyed the solitude. Saw many signs of wildlife with the fresh snow. The whole park is very scenic.
