It was a great hike! Beautiful weather. Made it up with a family of 4 kids from 4-12 years old no problems. It took about about 1 1/2 hr up and 1 down with kids. 1.62 mile one way according to my Garmin watch.

Awesome trail, consistently steep but nothing unmanageable. Lots of vegetation which was beautiful and bright. Water was flowing heavily and you could hear the sound of the water for most of the trail! Saw tons of geckos on the trail. The trail had pretty decent shade for the most part. We were able to find three old cards and go down to them, it was very neat to be able to get right up next to them! Overall a really great experience!

Absolutely gorgeous hike this time of year. So much green, beautiful yellow flowers, and waterfalls made for a stunning view the whole way!

Beautiful trail! We ended up turning back because there was a big rattlesnake on the path.

Our favorite trail! it was moderately steep and narrow in some areas for a majority of the hike, but we aren't in the best of shape and were able to get it done. The trail is Rocky and you will have to cross a couple of riverbeds. To get to the waterfall, you'll need to take the trail to the right once you reach the last riverbed (that was a little confusing for us). Getting down to the bottom of the waterfall is a pretty steep ways down, but there was a rope for help. We chose to climb up and over and made our way to the top of the waterfall, which was an amazing view! Lots of people had their dogs on the trail and they didn't seem to have any struggles!

This is a great little trail, beautiful views, we just went Tuesday and the creek was rolling pretty good. Not much shade this time of year but prettty.

Nice day, trail was clear, very little mud and snow only at the end. Both waterfalls were great and the creek was full!

A bit of snow at the end this time of year, but nothing too treacherous in Yak Trax. The stream is flowing nicely over the rocks, and the abandoned cars are a total blast from the past. A goodie if you’re in the area.

1st time doing this trail Sunday. It’s not marked well as far as the trail/trail head. The gate was closed due to weather conditions. We walked up the road about a half of mile or so to where it opened up on the R hand side. The trail head is located there (no signs) The trial is not very wide and in snow/ice could be a bit dicey. Overall - good steady climb. Would be fun to do in the spring/fall. Wasn’t able to go down by the waterfall, but saw it. Still a pretty hike in the middle of winter

Love this trail. The road was closed so it added about another 1/2 mile to the trailhead but it wasn’t bad since it is paved. Only passed two people as we were coming back down. Enjoyed the waterfall even though the scaling down the rope is a little scary but so worth the views.

The road to this trail head is closed, which adds a .8 mile uphill on paved road hike. There is a dirt parking lot on the right where the gate is. The road is steep, so we were pretty worn out by the time we got up to the trail. I’d say it’s a pretty steady climb to the first waterfall which is where we turned around because it took us an hour to go 1.6 miles when we got there. It’s a pretty hike, it only took us 25 minutes on our descent back to our car. I’m looking forward to trying this next year when we can hike the full distance.

Great trail, I think it is on the easy side of moderate. There are two waterfalls, the first one is small but the second one is great and it was surrounded by ice, really beautiful. I went to the end of the trail but it was very overgrown and not worth the extra 200 feet or so.

I didn’t make it to the waterfall because my dog was misbehaving, but the colors right now are absolutely stunning!

Just stunning right now! Thought I would go for a quick trail run and it became more of a run, take picture, run, take picture sequence. This is a good hike for kids. Enough incline to make it a workout but not too tough. There are multiple areas with crashed cars along the trail if you know where to look. My favorite car is at the second water crossing instead of going right as the trail leads. Go left and around some trees and see a crashed vehicle in the rushing water. Soon after you are back on the trail you come to the path that takes you to the waterfall. It’s on the right and down a steep section. Bless those that have left the rope to help climb down as it can be kinda scary. Will have to help small kids and take it slow. Wear a shoe with good grippy soles. Be careful not to knock rocks onto those below. I’ve had that happen and a rock falling on your head and hands hurts! The waterfall is a pretty sight! Right now at the bottom of the Falls and along the sides is ice which means the rocks at the bank look wet but are also slick with ice water so be very careful. The Fall leaves right now are gorgeous. With the cooler temps the leaves are falling quick. Fun to have them billow around you and to walk through them. You better hurry if you want to see them. 10/10/19

Love this when when the weather cools down and is perfect like today (9/12/19). It climbs almost the whole time, but there are bits of shade and a couple of creek crossings. The kids loved the cars; we counted 5 and a half. The steep decent to the waterfall isn’t for sissies! Thank heaven for the rope. A couple of the kids stayed at the top with the dog because he was worried about going down. It took us 3 hours there and back with all the exploring. Fun hike on an early fall day. You can see the leaves are thinking about turning and can spot touches of orange and red on the far side of the canyon. Yay!

This is a fabulous trail with many interesting features - three small stream crossings, two old vehicles that crashed some 50yrs ago and a waterfall. Would recommend hiking in the morning as much of the trail is exposed but there is some shade the farther into the trail you get. There are no facilities (water or toilet) at the decommissioned campground at the end.

Beautiful views! Pictures do it no justice. My dogs and son loved the creek crossings. Bring your kids! My 3 year old son was able to do do it with help in few areas. We did 2.4 miles of the 2.9.

beautiful easy trail! Great on hot sunny days because the waterfall will cool you off. Not too steep, a few creek crossings so shoes may get wet.

The road was close so we parked in the lot below and hiked up to the trail but not take the actual trail

Beautiful waterfall at the top. Definitely use the rope and climb down to the bottom of the waterfall. There are several water crossings,, but all doable with dry feet. Loved it!
