I went last summer and Tripadvisor says I never finished the review. I don't remember the trail very well, but it seemed short and disappointing.

It's a short hike uphill. The falls is very pretty and picture perfect. Takes 10 min. Can be slick in the rain.

This was a super steep hike for someone with bad knees. It was also very pretty! I recommend it if you can make it.

Go east on 8th up the hill where the road ends at a small parking area. Several views as get closer, and if really energetic a steep climb where you can duck the rock overhang and then stand behind the falls.

beautiful canyon, but the amount of recent water made the moss covered rocks in the canyon very slick, also a number of down climbs involve very loose steep dirt above high steep cliff walls. The "walk off" to bypass the 300 foot final rappel is...More

My wife and I had some anniversary pictures taken here and the setting was perfect. Plenty of space for kids to roam and explore as well (if we had brought them along ...).
