This trail is an amazing hike. Perfect inclines, keep your dog on the leash since there are spots that are right on the ledge. Still totally worth it for the views of the huge waterfalls at the end. I'd also agree it would be a stellar mountain biking trail, but since it's not meant for that I wouldn't risk it with the narrowness (in some areas, especially once you approach the waterfalls). Also, the drive to this spot is about 3mls in on a gravel trail, you're definitely be off the grid! Highly recommend!!

beautiful hike, it was very short and also kid friendly. It has a few good sized hills, but all in all its very easy and short. the waterfall was soooooo pretty! It's very tall. We didn't hike down to the bottom half of the falls because our daughter is VERY scared of heights and there was no way she was interested.

Nice morning hike, only people on the trail!
Falls are gorgeous. They are off the main trail and it's a little difficult to climb down into them, but well worth it. Pools look great for a swim, wish I'd planned for that!

The view is worth it. Hiked it on a Monday early evening in July and only saw 3 other people. Will do it again.

This a great hike to bring small kids on as it is easy and short. Can even climb down to the Lower Fall and climb up to the base of the upper falls.

A bit steep at first, but the hike is REALLY short and totally worth it for the waterfall.

Beautiful trail! A slight climb all the way up to the waterfall.

The waterfall is HUGE! Think of Sturtevant Falls on top and Cooper Canyon Falls on the bottom (see my avatar as a point of reference)
