  • About an hour and a half of generally level hike over some loose rock but mostly sand~ you arrive at an oasis! Plan on spending an hour there....so 4 hour commit!

  • Strongly suggest hiking this trail in the morning. We started at noon and the sun and heat were intense. Make sure you bring a lot of water. The waterfall is incredible. It wasn't crowded. Really great experience! Totally worth the 3 mile hike in.
  • Great moderate hike to a really nice waterfall. One of the best hikes in the area - parking fills up! Plan to arrive in the morning for guaranteed parking. We arrived about 8:30 am and was easy to get a spot but lots of people right behind us. When we left around noon it was full, people waiting for spots. When we went it was $5 self pay to park (drop in an envelope). There are flushing toilets for use in the parking lot. Hike is small ups and downs for 3 Miles each way. Lots of sandy hiking. No water crossings. Some shady areas if you go in the morning from surrounding cliffs, but by midday there isn't much shade, so plan for sunscreen or hats. You will need water, it is hot in the day time. Might be bugs depending on the time of year. At a normal pace takes about an hour each way. Overall really pretty hike that should be good for most people. We saw a lot of kids doing it, but it was hot so not all of them were having a great time.
  • This is the right way to enjoy summer. An easy few miles hike through the gorge and then a great waterfall with easy to swim small pond. I've been here a couple of times in last few summers and enjoyed every trip with friends. Water is perfect cool.
  • Awesome easy trial with an amazing view (the waterfall) at the end but overall just a very scenic beautiful trail! Would definitely like to go again and get there a little earlier and setup a picnic or something. Highly recommend doing this trail and is doable for all age/skill levels.
  • This is absolutely a MUST-DO hike if you are anywhere within a hour's drive. Hike is relatively flat, but there are sandy areas, which can be a pain. At least 70% of the hike is exposed, so be prepared if it is sunny and warm. If you arrive hot and tired to the falls, you will quickly recharge yourself in the crystal clear cold waters. The waterfall is stunning, to say the least.
