Great, easy trail! Mt.Nebo is our go to place to get away. We love the campsites, sunrise and sunset points, and this trail is a nice way to spend several hours at this park.

We love this trail! Easy to moderate. The views along the trail are beautiful.

Love this trail. So much to see on this trail- totally worth your time and effort.

Not free to see the waterfalls, but you can see the stream which has some mini falls. No hiking unless you pay.

Beautiful hike, even with the fog!

Nice, yet moderately busy trail with excellent viewpoints and well maintained sections interspersed with some slick areas. Do early in day as routine clouds show up early on top.

Great hike! Rocky and no shade. So be prepared. Perfect for beginners such as myself. Can’t wait to take my kids and husband up next time.

Love this one. Muddy and buggy but so much fun

It’s amazing to me that no one says anything about the primitive road that takes you to the trailhead. Maybe that’s common knowledge out in the superstitions, but anyway, getting to the trailhead is a bumpy and unpaved ride that can be done in a standard sedan but best with a high clearance vehicle.

The trail is nice and I wouldn’t say it was easy, more moderate. Definitely beats other trails in the valley in looks; lots of green even in the winter.

Trail was clear and passable up to the falls (did not go further).

Lots of water in the river crossings on the road to the trailhead. Recommend high clearance vehicle.

We didn’t have as much time as we would have liked, but we will definitely be back. This trail has lots of gnarly rocks on either side, which I enjoy. There was a little scrambling to be done in the way to Goat Rock especially, but nothing too bad. You can see across Monterey Bay from the top of Goat Rock!

Wonderfully maintained trail that showcases some very historical aspects of the canyon. Good for hikers of all levels.

Did a solo hike here! Looking forward to going back with friends!

Very easy trail that anyone could hike (my 80 yr old grandmother did it). The swimming hole is gorgeous the only reason I cannot give 5 stars is because of how crowded it can get (we went in the summer). If you can avoid the crowds and go on a weekday morning I’m sure it would be beautiful and relaxing.

We just hiked to Second Lake (mid January ‘18) and are amazed at how gradual the trail is - probably because it’s graded for stock. It was a fast hike of only 10 miles round trip, but the views are staggering, especially in winter. If you hit this trail before the next major snow you only need micro spikes after the Ranger Station.

great view of the falls.

beautiful right now! green and gorgeous. Wasnt too difficult except for a couple uphill stretches. (I am not in the best shape right now haha) But it was relatively easy.

This trail was just okay - nothing special as there is not really a waterfall at this time of year, unless I missed it somehow. Hiked further down into the canyon off trail and that was cooler.

great hike but water was not running was all dried up
great views

wish there was an easy way to get to the falls so I could take my folks.
