Arrived at 9 am and completed around noon. Pretty hike with lots of variation of height, steams, and views. Very dog friendly which was nice. Was a bit wet when I went due to recent rainfall which made parts muddy. Was very packed when we left at noon

Excellent trail!

Great hike. Wonderful combination of sights and terrain. Mickey O'Brian trail was a little unkempt and hard to follow but it's fairly easy to find your way back to Cataract trail. Absolutely recommended.

Beautiful day hike with many streams, marsh area, waterfalls, ocean views and meadows with wild flowers.

Beautiful hike with a wide variety of scenery. Cataract trail was muddy next to the river, so wear boots if it has rained lately. Cataract trail was busy, but there was no one once we turned onto the High Marsh trail. There were a couple of restrooms (pit toilets) along the trail. Make sure to pay attention to the map here on the app when making the switch from High Marsh trail to the Kent trail, the trails weren't marked well back there.

Great hikes, beautiful views, just enough hills and flats. Took about three hours. Highly recommend.

My wife and two dogs were able to complete this hike in about 3 hours at a comfortable pace on a nice July day. We parked at Rock Springs parking lot and there was plenty of room. For those taking the dog, this trail allows for Fido to come along but many in the area do not. The creeks and falls were all dried up so I recommend that it around late spring.

Our route: Cataract Trail to Laurel Dell. Continue past Laurel Dell to the fork. If you go left on Cataract it will lead you to Alpine Lake, head right to get onto High Marsh Trail. After the initial climb you'll head downhill for a fair amount of time after about half way the climb begins and continues for the remainder of the hike. We continued on High Marsh and then went up Cross Country until we reached Kent Trail. Hung a right and walked for ten minutes until we reached Potrero Meadows Picnic Area(a nice place for lunch) Continued on Kent until we were on the fire road, went left and took a right at the Benstein Trail. This led us pack to the Cataract trailhead.

Great hike to do with kids -- gorgeous views, meadows, streams and diversity of landscape. Highly recommended, especially in early spring when there is more water in Cataract Creek and Falls. Bring a picnic and plenty of water.
