Beautiful falls and decent trail. Perfect for kids 5+, but a little tough for my 3 year old.

Jaw dropping beauty from the time you leave the parking lot!
Great switchback trail with great sights all the way to the top.
There are lots of stairs in the beginning which is a challenge for me but was worth every step!

Incredible experience! It was beautiful from start to finish. The first rewarding sight is just a few minutes after departing the parking lot and they continue all the way to the top. Lots of families and pets on the trail. Parking requires cash, so be sure to get some change before arriving. Will definitely be back!

I hiked this a few years back with my husband and 3 year old son. This was the first hike I had ever done and being out of shape, this hike was difficult, but I made it. My 3 year old enjoyed it too!

Very popular trail. The parking lot is relatively small so, get there early. The trail itself is normally great and easy. However, a lot of rain has caused washouts along the trail and some very slippery conditions in spots. Be very careful especially if you take little ones with you.
Spectacular views will reward you at the top.
Stay safe and enjoy

Very well maintained, a stretch for our five year old, but he did great, as did the family. went after a wet week and the falls were gorgeous. Steep in places, muddy due to the rain, but great family friendly trail
