Great trail, amazing views and a small waterfall that falls into a crystal clear and fairly still pool of water below. There were more people than I expected but they were polite. Trails were very clean with no trash. Trails seemed very well maintained with pea gravel added for the wet areas. Small creek with crystal clear water and a pretty good current in some areas.

Nice simple trail. The waterfall was tiny when we went there. So unless it has been raining u won't see one. Nice views. No dogs allowed unfortunately.

This was a great, tree covered, quiet trail. Easy accessibility from Loop 360 causes a few places on the trail to have road noise, but those moments pass quickly. The closeness of the trail to the city and manageable length for families is invaluable. The views, trickling stream and small waterfall make it a very enjoyable experience.

It is always pretty quiet on these trails and there are a lot of trail choices from easy to moderate. The waterfall is beautiful. This trail has really helped me get back into shape, a fair hike up Youpon gets my heart rate up. It has served as a go-to trail for me, even if I want to hike farther than 2 miles it has been a trail I've been able to loop without getting bored of the scenery.
