Very good hike. Mostly shaded. Rocky portion along the river valley. Saw a bear cub along the fire road return segment.

On the morning we chose to hike this loop, there was a heavy blanket of fog in the valley. It almost gave it an eerie feeling walking by the river and falls with limited visibility. Very unique given the weather conditions. Would certainly hike this trail again.

We hiked this trail on a foggy day & it gave the trail a really cool feel. It runs right along the water which is awesome. Falls are great! We went straight at the the beginning of the trail instead of to the left, so hiking back to the top was pretty challenging but still enjoyable.

This trail never disappoints! I was happy to see my 4yo son manage the full circuit. Everyone had a great time on this hike. The tranquility of the sights and sounds on this hike are hard to beat.

Good kick-off-the-year hike for us. Loved the waterfalls. Nice balance of flat, up, and down. Rocks can be a bit wet so needed to be careful. Loved the day.
