Another steep hike! Definitely worth it once you reach to the top and see the view.
Did this hike September 20th. The trail was easy to follow all the way. Steady incline all the way up with awesome boulders to cross at one point. A couple areas have loose rocks & dirt so hiking shoes are much better than tennis shoes. Beautiful fall colors & views of the valley. The stream was just a trickle, will be nice to try next year earlier in the season to see the water. Really enjoyed the hike!
Sara Gibson was right! This hike was a nice, short, challenging hike.
Another steep canyon hike. We tackled this hike in Mid June, as the plants grow it can get a little overgrown. It is shaded! Follows a small stream. Dogs are allowed. It is difficult going up and down with areas of gravel and lose dirt. It is tricky to find the start point as the trail head begins between two homes. A great after work hike during the summer.
Nice hike. Strenuous for 11, 9 and 6 yo but they enjoyed it.
The trail has a nice steady incline but gets very overgrown in places which wasnt very pleasant. Might be better in the Fall when the vegetation gets less. The stream alongside was great.
Nice trail relatively Steepwith lots of vegetation and a beautiful waterfall near the top
Today, July 2, we saw a lot of butterflies and pill bugs. Luckily we didn't see any snakes and there were plenty wild raspberries, birds and squirrels, but not many flowers.
I recommend wearing long pants and long sleeves. This trial is a bit over grown and if you don't recognize poison oak or poison ivy, it might behoove you to take this precaution.
The trail is a steady incline, I'm a little overweight but it's doable. I also saw some older ladies 50-60s. It's kid friendly for 7+ and up.
Note, leave no trace. If you or your dog make a potty stop, pick up, clean up, carry out....including tissue paper ladies!!
Beautiful. Steady incline on the way in but nothing too intimidating. Some bouldering over rocks and you're suprised by a really incredible view.
The hike was beautiful and following the brook the whole time was great! A bit steep but doable. We got lost and didn't see the waterfall destination on the way up because the trail continues, so I wanted to write this to make sure no one else does this (we weren't the only ones on the trail that kept going thinking there was more). You will cross the stream in 2 places, and the 2nd crossing has a little bridge. Shortly after this you will come to a boulder field, and the waterfall is on your right! Stay low on the boulder field until you run into a rock wall, and shimmy across that rock wall along the stream to get to the base of the waterfall! If you keep going you can climb all the way up to mount Olympus on this trail, although this is the difficult way up!
Chill hike and beautiful scenery
Great hike: shade most of the way, aromatic wildflowers, a brook running along whole trail, very few people, beautiful waterfall at end.
