Nice shaded hike. Takes abt 2hrs. Met some really sweet new born baby deer. Parking looked crowded but the trail didn’t reflect that at all! Very peaceful & not a lot of foot traffic even on a near perfect spring day. Ps: Definitely a couple sections with steep elevations!

Hole-in-the-Rock is a bit annoying. You don’t need four wheel drive to get to this hike, but it’s a washboard mess. I went slow so I didn’t get a flat or mess up my suspension. It just takes patience and quite a while to reach the trailhead. Go early, carry extra water, and for gods sake please don’t bring dogs it’s too hot on their paws and too narrow in the slots. You have to climb about ten feet to get up in Peek-a-boo. I don’t feel like it’s as tight as Spooky. Spooky seems tighter and you have to squeeze in a hole between some boulders then drop down quite a few feet. Beautiful places and you can cool off for a bit in the shaded slots.

Super beautiful hike, it’s so green right now and lots of wild flowers! The first bit is sunny switchbacks but after the lake there is more shade. The last part of the hike is steep and rocky and quite the workout, so plan to work for the view. The waterfall is awesome. Saw a rather large rattle snake there today so watch your step.

We tried to get a permit but there was no forms outside of the ranger’s office. The nice lady came out and told us that we didn’t need a permit or a adventure pass because she said it is still closed but you can hike the trails. The hike itself is pretty but damn there are so many bugs! Even with deet on me, I still got bitten. You can hear it buzzing the whole entire hike. On our way down I ran into a rattle snake. Close call! Be careful everyone.

Trails, parking, and restrooms are open as of last weekend. Park rangers are great. Parking is $3.

Never disappoints! It’s harder than you think, but worth it. If you go left at the first fork you come to, the trail will have a steady incline all the way to the lake but no loose rocks. If you go right, you’ll have a steeper, rockier ascent at first but it will level out sooner. I think I prefer the left (west) trail because you get to cross the stream twice and it’s better footing for the kiddos. Recommend counter-clockwise around the lake for the best views. Beautiful in every season. The perfect hike for mountain-loving families (we take our six kids ages 0-13 here often).

Lovely trail, gradual slope, mostly shaded, little to no wildlife sighting. Wide enough for two people.

Staying on fire road is not as nice as going on narrow path with shade and wildflowers. Nice view at top.

Solid trail with views. No shade. Good vegetation to see. Not too difficult. Good for group hiking

Most boring hike I’ve been on in months.

Beautiful Trail! Went on a Saturday 5/30 around noon time and there were many people... however plenty of room to social distance. Parked along the road near the trail. Toward the end, the trail ends and you have to walk on rocks. Overall this trail is easy, just be careful with children because there are some steep parts. Very beautiful

Easy hike, however not much to see. Takes about 2.5 hours to hike, and did not see any wildlife.

Great hike! Was able to make it 5.6 by blending south falls trail with several other out there. I will not the directions are not accurate I ended up following signs for the Day use south falls trail lot to gain access. It was a great couple of hours and saw several falls. Fair warning to sprint customers my phone went out about 10 mins before I got to the parking lot. There was WiFi at the lodge so I was able to down load the map but while hiking there was no service like at all. Trails are clearly marked but just a FYI

So much fun! We loved the zig zag trail leading down into the canyon and cave. A must do if you're at the park! Our favorite of the day!

So far my favorite waterfall hike! Such a fun hike in the rain. I didn’t use ropes, I brought hiking poles with me and used them both ways, very helpful! A little hard to find where the trail starts, google maps takes you half way on the dirt road.

Fun first visit for a short hike and some photography. Several birds and turtles, light foot traffic. A couple trails bear off the main trail that are pretty to scope out. A few power lines diminish the overall quality a bit, but otherwise a unique spot I will visit again.

Gate was closed on road about 1 mile from trailhead. It was closed to car traffic, but not hikers. Trail was great, took about 1.5 hours to get to top and didn’t see anyone.

An excellent trail with amazing views of giant rocks, lizards and flowers. Many bugs due to the puddles along the “dry” creek. I hiked with 3 teenagers and they loved it, the heat gets stuck inside the canyon so you better take good water. The first pond and fall are nice, they have little water but still feels like a small oasis. We didn’t make it to the second fall but you’ll find the trail by your right when you make it to the first fall. Always follow the dry creek.

We absolutely loved this hike. We had a good time on top of the falls and an even better time behind the falls. The trek was very fun

Only Residents access. I went there today & it’s closed.

Quick, easy little walk leading to an overlook on the right side and a little cave on the left. Little ones would enjoy this as you can crawl around in spots.

This is a good trail. Lots of birds singing there around a pond. Then it becomes a spring that pours down to the reservoir. There is a cove which is beautiful. I like it there in early spring. Not sure how it is in winter or summer.
