  • Fun hike. Water crossings were knee deep. Last crossing was super slippery. Relatively clean area other than some farm debris and a discarded lawnmower on the adjacent property at the falls.
  • Easy-ish trail with numerous challenging, slippery rock, flowing water crossings. About one hour to the top from the trail head. Best to arrive just after opening time. Bring a hiking pole and waterproof anything that might be damaged by water. The switchbacks leading down to the first crossing is probably the most challenging part of the hike. The gate at the entrance to the parking lot opens at eight. The crowds start to arrive towards late morning.
