Where was the waterfall????Pretty hike and beautiful vistas but the description mentioned a waterfall and we had 4 disappointed kids.

This is a pretty easy trail that isn't remote at all, so you can take a break and visit a shop or just wander. It's paved and wide for better access.

This is a moderate to difficult trail, mostly depending on the weather and experience. Novice hikers can do the trail without much of a problem as long as they have enough water, are there when there are a lot of other hikers (better to know where you are and where you are going), and are prepared for some tight trails. I recall going over a few scrabbles and maybe a water crossing or two.

Great trail with scenic vistas. You get a lot of the uphill climb done in the first half. The split rock view at the end is breathtaking and a great spot to chill and eat lunch. Be careful on the return trip with the declines. Rocks can be a little tricky but all in all this is a great trail :).

Great hike. It was a little crowded.

Decently hard once you start since it's pretty much all up hill. But well worth it!
