This trail is lovely but it is hard to get past the poop bags and sonic cups and punk 17 years olds with techno music.
Might be better on a week day?
Also don't trust the starting point on this. You have to exit early and go along the frontage road in order to access.
The hill of life is a character building opportunity, but well worth it to see the nice views along the creek. The falls are especially scenic. Not quite as challenging as River Bend, but walking up the hill took the wind of of this big guys sails.
The one negative is there are simply too many dogs of their leashes which is against the rules anyway.
Great morning of exploring and hiking. loved it!!
This trail is very nice! Well shaded and has lots of rocks along the path! The views from the trail are amazing with the hills and waterfalls! The only downside is that this trail is VERY popular which means there's always a ton of people hiking the trail and hanging out by the falls so if you want a more quiet trail I wouldn't recommend this one. Very nice place to go swimming, chill in a hammock and hike! My dog loves to go swimming near the falls, we always have a great time!
I've explored most of this green belt during my summer here, but for some reason had not come here before. Big regret. This was my favorite portion. Lots of geocaching to be found, tons of small trails to wander around, and beautiful views.
This hike starts at the top of the hills surrounding the creek, then goes down to the bed and follows the creek to Twin Falls. The climb out on the way back can be a bit of a chore because it goes up and doesn't stop until the end. It is a good workout and during the spring or heavy rainy seaons, you can stop and go for a swim.
