Love this hike! There must be two routes. When leaving the parking lot the one on the left is on a pebble paved route that's easier. To the right is a more challenging route. But it's amazing! A lot of rocks and boulders. It's uphill and coming back the hardest part is not rolling your ankle. About 2 miles in the trail gets kind of lost with the fallen trees and foliage, but it picks up about 1/4 mile later. Didn't get much farther because the sun was starting to go down around 6 pm. I'll be going back for sure next week to explore it more.

Steep rocky and hot to the rope swing. Fun but the creek was mostly dried up when we got there.

I took the south trail to the right at the rope swing heading up a rocky trail - slightly steeper climb, fewer people, no bikes (the trail is too rocky) - sweet solitude - beautiful transitions thru the lower deciduous trees to tall pines. One of my favorite trails.

There are a million and one off-shoot trails branching off in every which way in this canyon and it's easy to get lost. You'll be on the right path (generally, at least) if you just follow the base of the canyon as it ascends up the drainage.

Very nice hike with some challenging spots. Tree cover most of the hike, so it's nice and cool on a hot day. We hiked past the waterfall a mile or so, hoping for a view of the valley but never did see one, nevertheless, it's a great hike, even for dogs!
There's plenty of parking, no drinking water or bathroom though. No bikes, too rocky.

Tough hike but the meadow at the top was a great place for relaxing and refueling. Took us 3 hours 45 mins with a half hour break at the top.

Took the dogs out on a hike with my best friend to grab a few caches while I was in town visiting. I wasn't aware how much of an uphill hike it was and got a little winded, but the views were beautiful. There are several rope swings that are fun to goof around on about a half a mile in which made the uphill treck worth it. I can see how others have gotten lost easily because there really isn't a clear trail and at times it seemed like there were multiple trails that spawn off from the main. Overall good hike just tired and sore.
