  • We did not experience any of the issues that other reviewers have documented - like trash, noise and other issues. The water was rather low, so the falls were a big letdown, but the hike through the q...  more »
  • I'm just confirming what other reviewers have noted: the clot of irresponsible visitors has ruined what used to be a favorite place of ours. If you want to yell while you're hiking, play your music so...  more »
  • We love dogs, we love people. This once beautiful trail has human waste, dog waste, and little pink, blue, yellow, poopy bags behind many rocks, or just sitting on the side of the trail. People were f...  more »

  • This is a popular dog friendly trail frequented by the locals. Most of trail is well tree covered and follows a gentle flowing creek. The modest elevation gain and relatively short trails makes it family friendly and is reflected by the amount of weekend traffic. An early start would be recommended to avoid the crowding that starts by mid-morning.
  • Wow! Incredible. It says moderate, but if you don't hike a lot, it's a little more difficult. The view from the top of the waterfall makes it all worth the 4 miles. No restrooms in parking lot or on trail. Gets pretty steep in some areas. Attached photo is of lower falls.
  • Nice trail, a fair number of ambiguous turns though with minimal signage. Pretty and uncrowded. I recommend the view from the cliff trail loop. No restrooms at trailhead and minimal parking.
  • Overall, a beautiful hike, but it doesn't have the same flow or grandness that I remember from a few years ago. Get there early before the lot fills up. If you have a dog, please, pack out your dog's waste instead of leaving it on the trail in a baggy.
  • Great hike, nice and easy. Trail got confusing around the falls, and there were a few plants obscuring the waterfall itself. Saw lots and lots of animals along the trail.
