Walking on this trail is something that my granddaughter Natalia and I enjoy a lot. We did it again in a beautiful day, fresh weather although it was almost the month of may. This time the waterfall had very little water, but nice to see and enjoy climbing the rocks .Ideal hike with beautiful views to do with the family, we will definitely visit it again.

Hiked it in the snow. It was easy and had some cool views. Signage can be a bit confusing.

Beautiful hike through forest and boulders down to the stream and then up to the falls. Went on a Thursday afternoon and didn't see another soul, but did see a couple of deer! With a few exceptions, the elevation change is gradual making the hike back invigorating but not difficult.

Great little hike any can do this one. No water source until you get to lake so bring enough to last.

The white sand is unique and makes it a destination

Amazing what a little water can do to a desert mountain range!

We did the guided tour, available during certain times. Beautiful and educational.

Easy hike through a beautiful canyon. Series of catwalks add to the interest.

I am assuming this place is a wonderful place for birding during winter migration, as the signs in the park explain. The "trail" is a ~3 mile loop meant for driving(15mph) or hiking and is flat terrain with little shade. There are some small trails with viewing platforms for bird watching along the way, as well as plenty of places for picnicking and outdoor bathrooms, as well. I know I came in off season but saw some killdeer, roadrunner and wrens!

Beautiful hike. Very do able. And well worth it

easy, great views, lots of shade, watch for mountain bikers - shared trail. we love it cuz it's only about four miles from our house!

Spectacular views at the start of the trail (by the restaurant) and at the cabin! You can see the top of the tram from the cabin as well. The slushy snow and fallen trees kept it challenging to stay on the trail at first (in April), but the views were well worth it! Would definitely do again but would probably wait until summer.
