I took my horse out here last week. I had a wonderful time, would do it again. The only reason i give this 4 star is because on one of the trails it said horse friendly ( but obviously wasn't ) logs, and branches were in the way. Too high for my horse to jump it :(

All time you will hear waterfalls sound .. very natural trail with uniform elevation. We took a deviation after .7 miles to squawk mountain Rd the followed equestrian to come back to trailhead. There are many small deviations once you are half way through. Keep the map or this app handy. We didn't see any view point as we took a deviation.
Recommend after a good rain week to enjoy the the streams..
Note: ready to get some real dirt on you shoes so pick your gears appropriately.
