Great for kids. Parking is hard

I would suggest going super early in the AM to avoid all the people going to check out the waterfall. It's a nice little walk. If you want a little bit more adventure look to the right side of the waterfall going up past the main walk down and you'll see a small hidden trail that goes above the normal trail and it becomes the "back road" trail. Enjoy

Great short hike if you can find parking and don't mind crowds and some rude people (unleashed dogs). My kids loved it since they could play in the falls.

Short & perfect for small kids. Also a great hour exercise break if heading over the pass!!!

Amazing destination once you get through the traffic jams of people all the way up the trail. A cool place to go on a hot day. If you're up for TONS of people. I wouldn't go here to soak up nature or enjoy a tranquil setting (follows I-90 so lots of highway noise) but might go again to let the kids cool off in the river and boulder around in the mist of the falls. They've done an excellent job at keeping up trail maintenance considering the massive amount of use this trail must see each year.

Can hardly be considered a "hike" with how short it is, but a very beautiful view.
