HikingGreat!

gorgeous but definitely can get crowded. wear waterproof shoes as you have to cross the creek many times. water was so cold my legs were getting a "brain freeze". we had to be back otherwise we would've explored more. if you decide to go past the swimming hole there is a lot to explore. great place to bring the dogs to swim and cool off as there are many points you can dip in

Upper parking lot was completely full. Parking all along the houses 1/2 mile away was completely full. People everywhere. Too many people for me. I prefer a bit of solitude when I hike

We so enjoyed this trail. Went up the steep rocky part at first, wandering a bit before finding the trail. We then ran east to the end of the trail near a road, then went L/North to the creek. We then followed the creek trail all the way back. What fab rocks and scenery, all with a great trail to run on. A few creek crossings and a bit of scrambling, but nothing bad, and a fun fun trail to run on.

First part of the trail had a little bit of a scramble. Trail is super mellow with three creek crossings. This hike would be perfect wit a pair of Chacos. Dog friendly trail, some were leashed and some weren’t.

Short trail and not marked very well. You likely will need to cross the River in three spots. NBD. It’s just ok.

I could not find a way to cross the creek after .7 mile because the creek is too high.

Super cool! Little slippery on rock with wet shoes. Lots of opportunity to get in the water. Nice trail.

Nice trail would be fun with kids - gave us some challenges crossing creek a few times - wish it were warmer to enjoy the end!

Short walk through a pretty canyon. Although clearly heavily used in warmer weather, there were only a couple other groups on the trail on a weekday afternoon in early March. This would be a great walk for little kids.
