HikingGreat!

One of the easiest hikes in the Valley. You see lots of families with young kids. Just a fun hike to do!

The waterfall is fun, I’ve been repelling down it, and to the side, before, so that’s a cool experience if you get the chance. Very cold water! Past the waterfall you eventually reach a meadow with good views of the valley. It’s a solid hike and it’s cool to hike along the river the whole way.

Could be the construction, but it smells like something was dead.

Super fun trail! Went midday so make sure if you do that you bring lots of water and some snacks! The main falls is super pretty but up the trail it’s fun to take some dips in the river and cool off.

The trail seemed nice, but i came to bike after I searched to see if it was for mountain biking. It didn’t work to well on a bike, would not recommend to bike.

Beautiful hike once you get to the stream/river. Several waterfalls along the way. Steep and rocky at points, watch your footing. Fun watching the repellers at the big falls. Wear your least favorite hiking shoes, it’s very dusty.

This hike was ok. Not too difficult for the kids, but not very scenic either. Really dusty. The trailhead starts near a park near the base of the mountain. It’s basically a gravel road for a lot of it and then it eventually becomes dirt and a lot prettier to look at after that. You follow the creek for a bit which is the best part in my opinion. The Falls themselves were quite pretty, and you can hike above them as well. I guess as an avid hiker, these lower hikes aren’t really my cup of tea. This is also a very busy hike with a lot of people so plan accordingly.

TERRIBLE TRAIL. Dusty. Construction. Nice UNTIL waterfall. Then... total trash. If you yearn to go out further than 1.8 miles (until construction...) go elsewhere.

Beautiful hike. Currently there is construction at about the 1.8 mile mark. They are laying pipe and planting natural grass! Steep hike with some small waterfalls along the way.

Always a good hike. Going around 7pm is great to avoid the sun because it is completely shaded. However, if you are trying to avoid people you should go in the early morning as it was very busy when we went.

I do this one quite a bit with my kids. My 5 year old can do the hike easily. We only go to the waterfall but is super pretty past the waterfall as well.

Beautiful loop! I had done both canyons multiple times but never taken the time to do the full loop, but the portion in between is beautiful with open fields, deer, and flat stretches to rest your legs. Other reviewers have mentioned the construction along the Battle Creek portion. It is a bit of a bummer, but is in view for a total of about 1% of the hike. Personally, I’d recommend parking at Grove Creek, then starting with the foothill portion from Grove Creek to Battle Creek, go up through there and then down through Grove Creek to your car. Battle Creek is steeper, but then you’ve gotten it and the construction out of the way by about 1/3 of the way through the hike and the rest is lovely.

Pretty mediocre. As an avid hiker, this one was a little disappointing. Once you get past the waterfall at the beginning, it gets SUPER steep and anticlimactic. The “peak” is just a strange valley with abandoned construction. Huh?? However I do recommend this trail UNTIL you get to the waterfall you can play in. Past that, it’s just a killer workout.

I mean, I love hiking but this trail SUCKS ROYALLY!! What a disappointment.. thought about giving 2 stars but not worth it. All rocks, dust, very annoying and way too steep.

We do this hike a couple time during the late spring-summer-early fall. We have a range of kids from ages 3+ that do the hike on their own with no problems. There is some loose rock and shale as you get near the part of the trail that goes right and downward to the base of the waterfall. I do not take my littler kids to the to continue to the top of the waterfall as every year there are incidences of death or individuals critically injured from falling off of the top of the waterfall. Overall this is a family favorite tradition hike. Easy to get access and park at the base of the trail. It is heavily trafficked so go early or later toward the evening. We have seen 1 rattlesnake in the 8 years we have been hiking this trail.
