Beautiful trail. A bit hot and hard at the start. I was visiting for a convention and didn't have the right shoes. My running shoes were ok and are certainly an option but starting at about 0.7 miles there are five spots on the trail with short runs of rick rack not friendly to running shoes. But they pass quickly. Once you get to the trees the trail softens and the shade is appreciated. The trail head claims 2.6 miles to the falls but my tracker placed it at exactly 3.1 miles in and out. The falls are beautiful and welcome relief. Overall there is a gentle elevation gain more noticeable to me on the way back.

Good trail did it a few days ago, weather was perfect kinda overcast not too much shade until your getting around the waterfall. Now that I have this app I'll be doing it again. Pretty good up and down hill climb. Did it with a back pack that weighed about 40lbs hoke there and back took about 2 hours 15 min with a group of 7

I love this trail! It's challenging enough to be interesting but isn't really difficult, offers some nice views, skirts the creek in a few places, and ends in a great waterfall. Trailhead is easy to find, and when the main parking lot is full, there are plenty of other options not far away. I hiked this trail on Presidents' Day in February of 2015--it was 70 degrees, so I couldn't resist doing a quick hike--and there was quite a bit of traffic. The last half mile or so is a bit slippery as you approach the waterfall; I was glad to have a walking stick. Surprisingly, even after a couple years with no real winter or snowfall to speak of, the waterfall was gushing impressively. My son went on this trail with some friends in late June and they had a great time, too.

Nice hike, definitely need to put the sunscreen on if you go during the summer. Did the hike this morning and the falls were beautiful.
