It gets very busy here so to properly enjoy it try to get there early and avoid the crowds. There is an entry fee into the park so make the most of it as it's very pretty and has hiking trails that are also worth...More

Pretty easy hike. The pool had little water. It was a nice hike and nice to see. I would like to see it with more water.

The loop walk is pretty and it is short and easy to manage for the who don't hike. The pools are currently closed (and have been for some months) due to falling rock. Check the National Park website before you go for up to date...More

The pools in the Gulch are closed, have been for the entire year. So basically you pay $20 to walk a .5 mile loop and look out over a mediocre waterfall and a few pools of water. I assume when they allow swimming, it changes...More
