  • Great Hike on a Warm Day. A group of friends got together and hiked Dry Creek Falls today on 7/11/2022. The parking lot at the Bridge of the Gods was where we parked( !!!!!!!!!!!!BEWARE--there have been car break -ins in this lot. REMOVE ALL VISIBLE ITEMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The first part of the hike goes under the freeway through a short tunnel. Then there is a constant but gentle hike uphill. The path turns left at the sign and continues uphill--not too steep but definitely an uphill sweat builder , especially on a 90 degree day. After about 2 miles you will get to a viewing bridge over a small runoff creek from the main waterfall. The trail continues another 1/2 mile uphill to Dry Falls which is absolutely beautiful. You can walk up to the pool at the base of the waterfall for a refreshing spray as you watch the monster gush in amazement Final take ---GO ( select a cool day to make the constant uphill more pleasant) Not recommended for the mobility handicapped person. Roots, rocks and difficult footing in many places. Recommended
  • Beautiful hike and worth the wait! Family and dog friendly. My 6 and 4 year old sons managed well. Lots of rocks on the trail and at the waterfall (plenty to throw 😊). Would definitely do it again.
