This trail is easy if you don't have little children with you or if you're moderately in shape, otherwise you may struggle. This trail is gorgeous and has beautiful views of the river. The falls at the top are fun to go down, but the water is FREEZING! Be careful navigating the falls, they are slippery and one false move and I could imagine broken bones as a result for sure.

We had an amazing time on the trail. We took our three month old and he loved it too. The hike was harder than we were expecting but we had a blast at the water slide. Well worth the hike!

This was a really well-maintained trail and the scenery was spectacular. However, it is definitely not a mild climb, but heavy moderate for those who are not from the higher altitudes. Be aware of bringing extra water and taking breaks along the trail as there are several places to rest and enjoy the amazing views of the Shashone National Forest.

Great hike! Trail is in great condition and beautiful scenery. I believe the 1.5 miles and 600' climb is accurate but is easily underestimated. Definitely worth the hike though

Beautiful hike. Uphill all the way to the falls but not extremely strenuous. Falls we’re really low (mid September) but I still went off the slide and we had a blast! Water was so cold but the slide is a must-do. A little scarier than I was expecting but worth it. There were maybe 4-5 groups of people who came and went while we were there. Sunbathed on the big rocks after going down the slide. Beautiful and peaceful little spot!

Me and my family went on a hot July day, and it was definitely worth it. When you get to falls there are many spots to get your feet wet or even brave a swim in the powerful waterflow. There's one spot in particular where the water slides down a big smoothed rock and into what appears as a natural pool. This is a popular swimming area. Beautiful summer wildflowers, lots of wildlife, and gorgeous views of the canyon.

Easy, great trail. Beautiful scenery. I would recommend it and do it again.

Great little hike with nice views of the Popo Agie and the canyon the whole way. The falls and rock slide are beautiful. Took us about 2 hours from start to finish--with lots of stopping for photos and about 20 minutes spent at the falls.

Great for novices. But don't let that fool you--yesterday I spotted a rattlesnake on the trail. Come prepared with standard back-country survival knowledge and equipment.

Powerful falls with many great viewpoints along the way.

Such a beautiful hike, we’ certainly be back again! I loved that our dog could come too and there were plenty of spots for her to get a drink!

I do this hike 3/4 times a year and it never gets old! If you want an adventure go up in the winter and check out the amazing ice.

Great hike. Not much shade. But, the falls were beautiful. Just past the good falls view is a pool and rock slide, if you are daring enough. Water a bit chilly, but welcomed!

this hike was more difficult than I expected given the rating and reviews; it's a decent incline the whole way up without very much shade. However it has great river views most of the way, the waterfall is spectacular, and there is even a few calm pool spots at the top to wade, play and relax. next time I'm packing a lunch and planning to stay longer at the top.

The hike was very simple, could take the family out for a day hike to see these gorgeous falls. When coming around the bend near the top you can hear the falls crashing down and the first glimpse will take your breath away! River was running quite high with the run off and the falls were significantly larger than pictures posted here from year before. Would recommend to anyone of any age!
