The first bit of this trail is in the sun, then you finally get a break when the trail starts curving more into the mountain side! Great, easy trail with my 8 and 4 year old boys! Bring lots of water if you go on a hot day!! The waterfall is pretty cool and the crashed car is neat to hike up to, there are a few areas to sit down and have a snack or break.

Beautiful trail, some parts are pretty rocky narrow and steep looks like it might have been washed out from the wet winter and spring we had.

River is polluted by car laying above falls.

Park at lower trail parking for extended distance, following trail signs up and across the road, you'll come to a dirt road that takes you down to the gate. (Parking at gate available) Sunset trail is about .7 miles from gate, to the right. Bikers frequent paved road. Decent incline. Narrow path, best on dry days with kids.

We had a hard time finding where to start this one, we parked in a little unmarked lot right where the pavement ends and turns into the dirt road up the canyon. The trail starts on the north side of the lot uphill. Very pretty as the leaves are starting to change. Uphill at first was hard for my daughter but overall an easy hike. It was fun checking out the old cars and there are some ropes you can use to get down to the base of the big waterfall. My kids LOVED that part of it, but they are older. Not something I would let 12 or under do. Not a busy trail at all, only saw a few others. We will definitely be back!

This is easy hike all the way to the waterfall and cross the stream and continue on the trail you will see a car in your right and continue to the end there is another white car.

A good single track trail but narrow, wide enough for single file hiking. Not wide enough for a stroller. Was able to hike 1.2 miles with stroller, but a lot of carrying the stroller. Ended up turning back as the trails continued to narrow.

Easy to moderate difficult trail, not stroller friendly. With stroller trail is hard but can be fine with a but of effort.
