RunningGreat!

Great trail run with a few steep hills as you descend to the lower parts and ascend to the road. Certainly not remote or backcountry. Car walkers are only on certain parts of the trail. Moderate to no views on most of the trail. But flat and easy trail with some rewards if you do the whole 8 miles. We parked on the road to gain the extra distance and completely avoid the parking lot hold ups. Parked at the beginning of the one way loop. Street runners are fine, trail shoes not necessary. Mostly paved and some easy dirt trail with very few -no rocks. Bear spray unlikely as necessary. IG @HydeoutsAdventures follow us and join us.

WalkingGreat!

Nice and short hike. Beautiful view of the canyon. It’s all paved. Steep back up but very doable.

HikingGreat!

Short walk down to the falls. Steep climb back up but worth the walk.

On the trail you get a chance to get new views and perspectives of the canyon. Need to come back next year and hike the portion of the trail between the lower and upper falls that is currently closed.

Will have to rehike this in the future as the trail between Upper and Lower falls is currently closed. Really enjoyed the views along the trail of areas of the canyon I haven't seen previously
