No water yet. We found tadpoles in some small puddles. Make sure you bring extra water. Very fun and easy hike. Can’t wait to go back! My 8 year old did great

Just hiked this trail on the 24th . No running water, just some standing pools; despite that it was an absolutely beautiful hike. Watching the sunrise over the mountains as you're in the canyon makes getting up really early worth it!

It was really hot. I drank all my 2 liter of Mt. Dew and was really thirsty, and I didn't have any Sour Patch Kids

I went alone and close to sunset. The view was amazing and very peaceful. The location feels like you’re driving to the middle of nowhere but the directions took me straight to the trailhead. I’d definitely do it again when I have more daylight to explore further.

Very nice. We saw rabbits and lizards. Great for my little walkers.

great hike with beautiful vistas

The trail starts off with an incline, and after about a mile you head down. After another set of incline/decline (2 miles total) the trail gets relatively flat and stays that way. We only did a total of 10 miles (5 miles in + 5 miles out) and saw a couple of domesticated horses and a couple of deers as well. Overall a nice, long, moderate hike but should do it when the weather is not bad as there is barely any shade

Trail was beautiful, but close to the campgrounds and highway for the most parts.

Our favorite hike currently. Difficulty depends on the water level. We can bring the dog! Some climbing required if water is high. Fun and beautiful.

Very tired but worth it. The sight on the top is excellent!

Says dogs are ok but if you want to climb the boulders may be best to leave your dog home. If your dog loves boulders - of course- bring him ;)

Took my dog we had a tiny scare, of course some other dogs were off leash but were super friendly (my dog is not). There was water but the river is not active. Definitely go at an earlier time sun is blazing when you go back uphill to the trail head. Other than that loved it!

Enjoyed the trail Great Views great Swim for the kids Very Pet Friendly

Scenic views of lake and surrounding hills. Used very little, overgrown.

This easy hike had some surprising, beautiful rock formations, including some places to scramble around and explore. It pretty easy, too, for our older dog to manage. I would definitely go again.

Un trail con excelentes vistas, gran altura.

Beautiful view from the top. It was an 8 hour hike. Take plenty of water and food.

What a great hike! I took my 2 older kids 13 and 15, they found it difficult but worthwhile. Views where amazing. We went up old baldy and down old baldy. We made the peak in 4:20 and back down in about 3 hours.

Good trail took the dogs out they had fun, lots of slippery rocks, not much water right now .

Excellent hike. Round trip from the parking lot to the waterfalls took us about 2 hours. Right before the falls there's several steep sections that were fairly slippery. It's doable but be careful.

After a total of 107 switch backs, several water breaks, I still managed to reach the top of the summit which I really enjoyed. The views were magnificent. Don't let the short distance fool you, be prepared....bring lots of H20, protein foods to include raw honey, bagels, nuts, etc...and of course pack enough for at least an overnight in case of emergency. Be safe.

Amazing hike. Switch backed over steams then ponds of water. Rock climbing. Kiddos loved it. I would rate this as a harder hike, more difficult thru some areas. Some slippery rocks. The hike was totally worth it, when you get to the top it is priceless!!

Definitely not hard, maybe moderate, but nice quick hike with some great views

Initially you will be hiking in a sandy wash area. Be on the

Difficult, but loved it!!!

I hiked both the North and South trails.

South trail is where the stone bridge (seen in the photos) is located. The ramadas and toilets are also located here. The toilets are in piss-poor condition (pun intended), and the actual trail is not clearly marked. These are the reasons for my low rating.

North trail is where the petroglyphs are located. You must hike through the wash and under the overpass. The petroglyphs are on a low rock face, on the left, near the end of the wash.

Quick and easy trail with a bit of history and remnants of foundation of buildings that once stood.

Great small hike in beautiful country!

Probably best ranked as moderate - very nice trail and worth it for the city views and end of trail!
