Loved the fact that the trail follows the water but with the cooler weather we were not interested in wet feet. We couldn’t find the part of the trail to hike above the falls a mile in. Otherwise it was a super nice hike.

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.

Great hike if you're looking for a relaxed trail with changing landscapes and an awesome swimming hole! Perfect summer swimming hike.

Crowded up until the second waterfall, after that it was an amazing hike with breathtaking views. Lots of children and off leash dogs. Have to cross the creek about 4 times so prepare accordingly.

Mmm

Really fun and easy with very little exposure. Perfect for a post hike hike.

This trail is much more about the waterfall that the actual hike. But the waterfall is great and you can get right in and swim. A trail does continue to the right of the waterfall but we didn't do that. We were just there for a refreshing swim. You will see a rocky way down into the water a couple of hundred feet or so before the waterfall.
