I echo all of the comments about the trail quality - the last 1.25 miles are pretty interesting. When you are just about at the crack there is a Y in the trail. The right path goes down to the water and I believe the rest of the trail. If you're looking for seclusion and shade this is the place for you. The left trail brings you to the crack very shortly. What a blast! Rock ledges ranging from about 8 feet to 30+ feet, with water depth of 8 feet or more. We went in late May and the water was running well - not sure how it runs in late summer. All in all a pleasant hike with a great break in the middle. I rated it 5 stars because of the crack - the hike is maybe 3 to 4 stars.

Follow the signs to get to the trail head. Apparently they put a gated community in the way so following the gps won't help you. Great hike with lots of picture spots. The top is closed off right now due to Hawks nesting but still can get pretty close to top.

awesome trails!

My husband and I completed this trail today. We are both in good physical shape. 64 & 56 yrs of age. The scenery on this trail was amazing! The rock formations and views of the lake were fun and serene. It took us 3 hours. We definitely felt the stretch on our legs and ankles, the walking up down put some stress on our knees. It is a moderately difficult trail and this is probably as hard as our bodies could probably do. Good hiking shoes, lots of water really helped.
