  • It's June 9, 2017- For many individuals the current water levels are too high to make it safety all the way up to the shallow cave. At the top you will find a waterfall coming through the roof of a shallow cave. It is an interesting adventure in all seasons.
  • It's a fun hike, it's steep in the beginning and rocky throughout and in order to get up to the falls you have to hike through the river. My 5 year old loved the river rock climbing at the end but not the first half of it. Fairly shady for at least half the hike and the cold river water definitely helps to cool you down. It's family friendly but if your going all the way up to the falls your going to have to be a fairly good climber. The water was manageable in the end of July
  • Pretty easy hike, took my in laws. We went in mid September in the evening and it was a little chilly. If you keep your eyes open, you might see deer right off the trail.
  • My seven year old loved the adventure of climbing the rocks along the falls.
  • Great family hike! We went with kids ages 3-12 and all had a great time. The hike took us about 30-45 minutes. We saw lots of ground squirrels and a deer.
