Hiked just to the rope swing with the kids. Rocky and steep to that point, maybe not the best kids' hike. Fun when we got to the swing, though the creek was all but dried up, unfortunately. Just a trickle.

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.

Good:
Lots of cover, stream is awesome, foliage is lovely, super close to civilization

Cons:
Hard to stay on the trail (I lost it 3-4 times), lots of loose rocks, occasional hiking up wash, no real destination

Not a bad morning, but there are better trails.
