Lovely walk up to a beautiful falls

Nice short hike. Went on a Wednesday so there was barely anyone. Waterfall is super full. There was some areas where we had to climb over big tree trunks.

One of my favorite hikes! If you want to miss the crowds go early.

JUST BECAUSE YOUR DOG IS FRIENDLY TO OTHER DOGS DONT MEAN EVERYONE ELSE'S IS
I decided to take my dog (100 lbs American pit friendly to ppl not other dogs) seeing that dogs were allowed ON LEASHES I figured this wouldn't be a problem being the other dogs (if any or so I thought) would be on leashes as well. I can control my dog so it no problem ,but boy was I wrong! thankfully nothing serious happened but a lot of stupid ppl seem to ignore the leash rule. I get it it's fun to see ur dog roam freely, but u have to realize JUST BECAUSE YOUR DOG IS FRIENDLY TO OTHER DOGS DONT MEAN EVERYONE ELSE'S IS! 4 times I had to stop my dog from almost getting into a fight with other dogs because their stupid owners thought they were PRIVILEGED enough to ignore that rule

Trail north of the highway Trailhead is not currently accessible without crossing a fast flowing stream. South half of trail is fine.

Nice and peaceful trail. However, towards the end we came to private property and the owner had a pitbull which was not on a leash and some what frightened us. The dog followed us for about 30 sections barking then left us alone. Besides that trail was good!

Beautiful hike with gorgeous waterfalls.

Absolutely incredible waterfalls! Hiked this trail on April 1, and the water was roaring. It was a busy weekend in the area but there weren’t too many people on the trail. If you’re in the Yosemite area I’d say this is a must do! No fee, dogs on leash allowed. Well maintained trail.

It's a nice hike! bring some insect repellant...

We parked near the trail head. Sun and snow made beautiful pictures. Creek runs on the side of the trail. We turned around half way, because couldn’t cross the river. Main waterfall is very pretty, however more people. While hiking to Waterfall was not a sole on a Sunday. Going downhill on way back.

This is a great trail from Fall until hit starts hitting the 90s. It's even better after a light snow. Full trail starts at Cedar Valley but if you want a shorter hike then there is another trailhead further up HW41 that is about the halfway point to red rock falls at the end of this trail.

so pretty, especially with the light snow we got covering the ground!

Loved this trail! The views were amazing. Lots of inclines, definitley got my heart pumping.

Was a very nice hike. Didn’t feel as long as it is. We did have to deal with some snow flurries early on but worth it!

Beautiful trail. Some steep inclines but manageable with rest areas, maybe too steep for little ones. Wooden balcony/lookout point with benches at water fall/midpoint.

We started on Cedar Valley Dr.. nice hike not to crowded in the am but got busy as the day went on.... A few changes in elevation other then that pretty easy .. waterfalls were pretty cool

Great hike, little hard to find the real beginning (on Cedar Valley Dr) instead of the halfway point right off the 41. But either way great hike with plenty of steps and areas to rest and enjoy the falls.

Very fun day hike with lots of views of the water

Overall it was a fun hike. Two kids aged 12 and 10 were fine on the hike. Only reason why it wasn’t a 5 was because of the excess debris on the trail such as fallen trees, trash, etc.

Trail was a bit wet going towards the Christian Camp, but if you’re only hiking to the Falls, it should be fine with moderate foot traffic. There was a loose Pit Bull terrier closer to the Cedar Valley trailhead that barked and scared off a few hikers and their dogs, but there is a big sign from the owner near the trail that read “Beware of the Dog”.

Nice hike even for little kids.

Was closed but many people where still on the trail. It was a great hike!

We tried to start at the trail head off of Cedar Valley Dr & the trail head was closed.

EASY and beautiful! Great little hike if you're on your way to or coming from Yosemite. Beautiful waterfall and some great pools to cool off in or take a swim. Dog friendly. Lots of people. Most stop at the first fall, but keep going and you'll get to the other smaller falls, and the fun pools. Pretty field and wooded areas to walk through also. The river/creek has a handful of nice places to stop and have a snack.

Very nice area to hike, would rate this trail 5 stars but today the black flies were so bad we turned back early. If you haven't experienced these flies before you will be surprised at how agressive and persistent they can be, constantly swarming your head and face. A bug net for the face could be the difference between a ruined hike or one that is enjoyable some times of year. Even with Deep Woods Off, the insects were too persistent and thick. Still fairly smoky out today also. A lot of Poison Oak everywhere so be careful there. We will try back again in a while.
