Saturday fun! This trail has a bit of everything so be prepared. Everyone can do this hike! I took my kiddos and went their pace. Start in the early morning since it will get warm and the last mile or so before the bridge lacks shade except for two small trees. There are a few climbs that require patience and common sense but they aren't too difficult. If you go on a day Bungee America is having their event be sure to be ahead of the crowd, as they can be 70-100 people deep! Take rock areas slow to avoid falls. Sunscreen, hats and and mosquito repellent are recommended. Four to five liters of water are good on a hot day. Be sure to take the right snacks. The water at the bridge was perfect for swimming so bring your bathing suit, take your time and enjoy nature's natural water park! First Tip: Since the river water is nice and cold you can use it to re-cool the water you haven't yet consumed for your return trek by placing the containers in the river! Take a thicker grocery bag with you and put a large river rock in the bag to hold your water containers in place. Second Tip: If you bring a pet, consider that a dark-colored animal will suffer more in the shadeless areas. I saw a few dogs panting like crazy and they had to be carried out by their irresponsible owners. Last Tip: Ladies, if you insist on wearing workout gear consider not wearing black! Black will make you really HOT, and I don't mean in looks, unless you want to look like a hot mess after the sun wears you down. Carry a change of wear if needed. Overall it's definitely a great time! crzyrabbit@gmail.com

Beautiful hike without a lot of elevation gain so even though it's on the longer side it's not too hard on the legs. We brought lunch and hung out watching people bungee jump off the bridge. There's a few areas of minor rock scrambling which just adds to the fun of it and several little swimming holes. Bring lots of water and sunscreen as there are long stretches lacking in shade.

I did this hike today. WOW! This was a truly beautiful hike. There are pools in the river constantly along the trail (if you call it a trail) for cooling off. Lots of water is needed for this hike along with snacks. I chose to take the river path the entire time so I could swim in the pools under the bridge ( a small but awesome natural rock slide is there) as opposed to the top. This path added a couple miles, when all said and done we hiked just short of 15 miles according to our gps. The hike was long, but today I climbed huge rocks, had some harry hard to find paths, swam in natural pools, climbed up small waterfalls, saw some amazing nature, saw people panning for gold,and had the time of my life. I am so sore now, but will do this hike time and time again. Love it!! :-)

BRING LOTS AND LOTS OF WATER! 8 bottles of water is good for one person. this hike isn't for the faint of heart. I went bungee jumping so the instructor lead us on the hike to the bridge. I got lost on my way back...

Could not find this hike at all. Drove around for a little while trying to find it but with no luck. Also never saw anyplace to park. do not recommend this place at all as it's extremely hard to find. went a few miles down and saw a few cars parked so decided to try there and was disappointed at all the trash all over the place. Even saw a bra that someone had left. This place needs a clean up and fast.

I've only done this trail once - last summer, but i've been wanting to go back ever since. I had a rough time since it was over 100 degrees that day and we got a later start than we should have. The exposure on the last half of the climb really got to me. I was almost ready to call it quits about a mile from the bridge, but i'm very glad i didn't cave, because I would have missed the best part. Crisp, cool, clean pools to swim in, and I didn't hesitate to jump right in after eating my packed-in lunch while watching some bungee jumpers. I remember there being lots of people on the hike in. Try and get as early a start as possible.
