It was 95 so a bit miserable in the sun but the hike was fun, has some great shady areas and the waterfall at the end was glorious and so refreshing! My 3.5 yr old experienced hiker some did this on his own and with our help in a few areas. Wear swim suits, hats, take towels, water and sunscreen. Hiking shoes you don't mind walking in water with or also bring water shoes for those spots as well as the swimming hole at the end. I wouldn't normally mark this as toddler friendly but with the help of adults it's possible for toddlers who are experienced with hiking.

This hike is wonderful. It's more of a walk. It goes through the canyon and through water. (The best part!) the water fall at the end is beautiful. You can even find a way to the top and enjoy it from above!

This is the perfect hike for the hot afternoons, especially with kids. We had 2 nine year olds and a 7 year old and they loved it. There is a swimming hole almost as soon as you get into the trail which requires a little scrambling to get Down the rocks but very doable. You can swim in the waterfall which the kids loved. You can continue on the mostly shaded trail which has several stream crossings also and you will find a second watering hole which you can swim in also. There is a nice area to sit on the rocks and a great way to get out of the heat. There were several people jumping off the rocks around the second hole but the water is only about 6 feet deep so I wouldn't suggest it. Great trip with our kids.
