This hike is perfect for a fun, quick hike. It's absolutely gorgeous and our dog loved playing in the water. The water is really high and you should use caution.

Short hike good for the entire family. Nice reward at the end with a beautiful water fall that at this time has lots of water flowing down. Maybe some muddy areas but nothing to stop you from enjoying this spectacular waterfall. Suggest you take this hike now while there is an abundance of water coming down the mountains.

Nice short hike. Good for taking kids on for a quick trip outdoors. Be careful in the spring of the run off, we ran into flooded river and had a few difficult spots crossing. If you don't mind getting wet and a little muddy it isn't bad. Nice waterfall at the end of hike.

Great little hike! The waterfall is very pretty. The river is high right now so you can't really go inside, but you can go on top.

It was still snowy slushy muddy on April first but we had a great time. Oh and we had to hike an additional 1.3 miles to get to the trailhead because the road was still closed. So a 1.2 mile hike turned into a 3.8 mile hike.

Quick hike! was pretty cool, worth taking a walk, you get to go over skinny bridges and at the end is a waterfall. My dog loved it, had to go through snow to get there but wasnt difficult at all.

This hike was absolutely gorgeous!! We did it yesterday and the road to the trail head was closed so we walked on the snow. When you get to the trail itself, it is super snowy and slippery. The frozen waterfall was BEAUTIFUL and so worth it, but I wished we had snow shoes or spikes. Super short and easy hike. We loved it.

Did this hike a few days ago. The road is closed about a mile before the trailhead due to snow so you have to walk through the snow to get there but other than that it was a fun fast hike.

The grotto is a great family hike that I took my four kids on (ages 1-7) without any difficulty. We went during the summer and as such be warned that it can have very heavy traffic on it. Fun in the water at the end....well worth it.
