The view is absolutely amazing. Anyone familiar with desert living will be impressed with the beautiful waterfall in the middle of no where. However, this is not really a hike at all. So actual park trail is only about 0.5 miles long. It's really just a view point. There are unauthorized trails that can lead you to the bottom of the fall but they are unclear, very steep and it's completely at YOUR OWN RISK!!!

steep, some what unsafe, beautiful view, be very careful with children. Our route took us to the top of the falls very scary to look down 185 feet.

Beautiful, but the marked trail isn't very interesting or very long. There can be lots of wildlife here. Even too much wildlife lol mice etc.

We had a stroller. It was not easy. So we have decided if we do go again we will bring the carrier. But it was beautiful and being next to the water was so much fun.

Hiked to the bottom. I'm really not all that thrilled about heights and a narrow trail passing other hikers but it was well worth a few more gray hairs for me.
Had a great time and I'm so glad we did it!!!

pictures don't do it justice! the parking lot drops you off at the top and there's a light hike with great views of the falls and the river but if you're adventurous you can use some unofficial trails to get lower along the river and bottom of the falls. it is a bit steep but not too challenging. you do need a parking pass to park though and you have to pay with check or cash in person. technically there's a way to pay on the phone but there is no reception.

Easy hike. Going back up from the falls it is a steep incline. Beautiful, I've been there twice and definitely wouldn't mind going back.

We are beginners... this was pretty easy until the end. The last 50 feet, felt like we had to crawl. It was enjoyable experience and we will definitely do it again. It was beautiful scenery. Glad we went early to beat the rush, as we were leaving around 11 the place was packed. I would go as early as you can.
