Great trail. (No waterfall from what others told us)
We went about 1-1.5 miles down. Wouldn't recommend for younger (toddler aged) kids. It's pretty Rocky. Great exercise

Great hike. Steep enough to get the heart rate up. Beautiful view at the saddle.

Good hike for my 3 young boys. No water fall though. May be due to time of year.

Nice little stroll trough the base of the foothills that follows a fence line mostly. Lots of scenery, cool saguaro forests and some free range steer. I took it from the Wave Cave parking lot to the paved lot to the west. Definitely an easy hike for the family. Always bring the essentials though...

Great views throughout the hike......especially the top. Some parts can be challenging and the climb gives one a good workout!
