Fantastic view from Preachers Rock!

Beautiful views!!!

Not really a hike, although you can explore. Lots of fun. It was really dry when we went. We'll go back in the summer.

The kids enjoyed this a it (9 and 4). It was a quick hike, a little crowded.

I give this a 3 star because it wasnt what I was expecting it was suppose to be a chalenge but it wasnt.

Love this hike! Beautiful scenery. Good workout but still enjoyable.

Fairly short hike but has a couple of steep climbs. Very enjoyable! Beautiful scenery

Enjoyable and easy hike for a relaxing day. Very family friendly and suitable for all skill levels.

Went in the Jeep... it was kind of lame.

After seeing the lower and upper falls, we continued past the upper falls on a trail that was once maintained but has fallen into disrepair. After a while the trail turned straight up for a brutal slog up the mountain, at the top of which we had pretty good views of a huge waterfall, which we couldn't get to. After getting back down which was lots of fun on that incline, we got back to the creek and followed it upstream off trail to the base of the falls. We had to cross the creek downstream of the falls where it meets the main creek and then cut left. We couldn't get all the way to the base, but we got close and had a really good view. A nice unexpected addition, but not easy.

Edit- after reading more, the mystery falls were actually the upper falls before the trail was closed. One of five counted in the park, although we didn't see evidence of 2 others.
