This is actually an easy hike. You drive most of the way and it's no more than a mile to the falls

Very pretty hike. Well maintained and not hard at all. Trail distance is very inaccurate though. More like a 1.75 mile round trip.

This hike had a beautiful view and was not difficult to do with 2 toddlers in backpacks. It was much shorter for us, though, as the straight part of the hike at the beginning was a road to a parking lot so we continued driving it without realizing.

I wouldn't go with small children (we did), the trail is right on the edge of the mountain and some parts had slid. We loved it though. Beautiful beautiful hike.

Amazing views, and a well beaten path made this a great choice, and an easy hike for our whole family. It's ACTUALLY little more than a mile round-trip hike from the trailhead. It was easy for my 8 year old daughter.

Great hike for the family. Not hard at all. Beautiful views of the valley. The red rock is amazing. The trail can be a little wet from the water run off.

This was a fun hike. The trail is actually only 0.6 miles one way, so just over 1 mile in to the falls and back. There are some steep edges in parts so you may want to hold younger children's hands, but they can easily maneuver the trail. Beautiful scenery along the way! Be sure to take pics! The waterfall is nice and large at the end of the trail, and you get to look over it from the top/side. Enjoy!!! :)

Good trail steep edges where you have to watch out for children. Cool waterfall coming out of a rock cavern at the end of the hike. A lot of great scenic views along the trail.

The trail is actually less than 2 miles out and back. There is a dirt road that leads to the trailhead which starts at a lookout where you can see Zion in the south. It's a beautiful trail. Moderate because there are a few places where it's a drop off so hood the little ones hands.

It was a nice trail with a gradual incline with spectacular views on occasion. Nice for a quick fitness walk with some scenery
