I think this was an excellent hike. I got here just before 7am, and I recommend you do to if your looking for some solitude. The trail head was easy to find, markers throughout the entire hike were great. You can make it as short as 2 miles or as......well, plenty of loops and side trails can turn this into an all hike. My 3&5 year can easily do the hike to the falls. The water is low, as should be expected, but nonetheless, great views. What's sad was the amount of plastic bottles throughout the canyon. I mean really people; hike it and hike it out. If your to lazy, but a camelback.

I enjoyed this hike. Lots of different routes you can take and there are plenty of signs and maps to help you find your way around. The waterfall wasn't anything extravagant, but it was still a pretty nice view and the ponds were nice to stop and wade in. Go early in the morning because the later it gets, the more people, and some of the paths get pretty thin so it's annoying when there's a ton of people. Overall it was a good hike but not very challenging, good for first timers, families, or if you just want a quick stroll.

Nice trail for families. We took our 2.5 yr old daughter and she did great. With a the hike of the poppy trail and the hidden falls access trail. A 3 mile round trip. We went In the late afternoon on a weekday, about 330 it wasn't crowded. There are lots of swimming holes to stop and enjoy the water for a picnic or to cool off and explore. There are lots of Blackberries on the trial. The horse poop was a bummer to always walk around. But trail is also a cess to horses and mou tain bikers. The Falls were a disappointment with not much water...but we did go during the summer. We will be back in the Winter it shall look beautiful.
