Was pretty true to hikers only, but there were a lot of people on the trail. Because it is out and back it was crowded. Moderate due to walking uphill and difficult terrain but overall not too difficult.

Great hike brought children 7 yrs old to 14 yrs old. 6 children total went to waterfall approximately 4 miles up. Great views mixture of conditions. A lot of water crossings will highly recommend

Nice trail. Not too steep, not too easy. Took my dogs and they loved it because of the water and they could be off leash. I was only able to go 2 miles out before the trail got muddy and hard to follow so my trip was 4 miles total. Will check this trail out in the winter for snowshoeing!

This is a pleasant out and back following Jim Creek. Good views, not steep, and a nice little cascade at 2 miles. My kids enjoyed it.
