It definitely wasn't easy if you have kids. You need to use a rope to get up where the supposed waterfall is. It's easy up until that point. Unfortunately there wasn't any water other than a few dirty puddles full of tadpoles. We still enjoyed it and the scenery was beautiful.

Great hike but would have been better if the water was flowing.

Very nice. Would have enjoyed it more when the water is flowing.

Awesome views, went with my 9 year old and we both really enjoyed it. We are fairly inexperienced hikers but this was still very easy, felt more like a nature walk.

We went in April and there was a lot of water, and the waterfalls and pools were really cool. We went back in July and all the water was gone. It was kind of sad because we were hoping to swim in the pools, but nonetheless it's still a fun hike.

Easy enough hike while still feeling like an adventure. The water is nice and it wasn't too crowded in mid May.

Great little hike! Our teenagers loved it! Couldn't get to the end. There was a slick rock we couldn't get up. Made it about 3/4 of the way. Still a lot of fun! Not really any water in the stream in July.

Beautiful- fun hike, but there was no water. :( I guess the July heat dried it up lol.. cuts for the stairs is dangerous with a 4yr old. For adults and teens it's a small thrill however still dangerous when there is no water to break the fall.

A beautiful, kid-friendly hike. We went as far as the pool with the cut in stairs and thought it was perfect. The water is a great way to cool off on a hot day.

This hike was beautiful! We were a little disappointed that the pools were so small, but that's what you get for going in July. Still worth seeing! We plan to go back later in the year when the pools are full.

We did a quick road trip with the family to Utah from California on weekend. After a leaving Zion National Park a little disappointed due to the overcrowded areas we hit Red Cliffs Campground in the Red Cliffs Preserve. The hike on Red Reef Trail was amazing. The views were breathtaking and the trail was easy enough for all the kiddos. And the best part was it was away from the crowds of Zion.
