Nice easy trail, fun for all. It is an open trail for Mountain Bikes and Hikers, so watch out. Waterfall does depend on rain. Can get a little crowded at times, but still worth the look.

Unfortunately it didn't rain so much within the week so it led to a disappointing view at the end. However, lots of visitor pictures suggest that a visit after a good down pour within the days leading up to your visit will create a spectacular waterfall! The hike was not bad, but like I said, it would have been nice to see a waterfall and not a trickle.

Not the prettiest trail and you certainly won't find any peace and quiet on it. It is heavily trafficked with screaming kids. I had the pleasure of having a group of teens not far behind me talking at the top of their lungs, being obnoxious, belching, etc. Fortunately, this trail connects with many others if you keep going, so you can find some peace and quiet. The falls themselves are beautiful, though.

The waterfall makes the not-so-scenic trail worth it.

The waterfall is definitely the attraction, otherwise not overly scenic.

Went twice, the first time it was almost completely dry but the second was great. go after a good rain to get a nice experience. the clay can be slick.
