This is a great hike, and the waterfall at the end is amazing!! This is NOT an easy hike. For about 3/4 of the way it is easy, but the last 1/4 becomes quite steep with several rock scrambles, so be prepared. Also, I think that this is a hike that is best done in the summer/fall. You follow the river very closely at some points and I am sure when there is snow melt the river become quite high.

Muddy. Hard, rocky and uneven terrain in most parts. The waterfall is pretty, but not the hike. This trail is NOT EASY.

This trail is very dog friendly - there's water almost the whole way - but can be pretty crowded, especially on weekends. I would not call it difficult, more moderate, but the waterfall at the end is definitely worth the trip at least once! I haven't done it in over a year but it's generally one we try to do every summer or fall.
