Nice trail with some steep sections. Beautiful views from the upper part of the loop. There is a bench at the top of the ridge which is a perfect resting place. Would recommend going around the loop to the right (counterclockwise) to avoid going downhill on the steepest section.

Nice trail.. Good view on top. Not too exciting.. But good incline. Not technical.

Hiked with a couple friends over summer. Weather was warm, bring water if it's hot outside. Difficult to find trail head, so don't be afraid to drive onto the school grounds to find it. Hike itself was nice and relaxing, some shady spots, but we had to turn back about 45 min in, because a particularly feisty rattlesnake was blocking the path. Nice views down valley when coming back down, especially on a clear day.

Drove up to check out the trail and waterfall. Arrived to find the campground closed for the season but the trail open. Campground seemed nice and open, and it was absolutely out in the middle of nowhere; I'm sure camping there would offer quiet and a great view of the stars.
The trailhead was easy to find, and the trail well kept. If rose steadily until reaching the falls. i remember two small stream crossings - barely rock hoppers. The falls themselves were impressive. Your first view, from the topi of the trail, is good, but walk down and take a look up at them from the other side of the gulley. Beautiful.
The trail should be easy for all who can climb the gradual 300 feet. At the base of the falls there are opportunities to scrabble, which might be difficult for some.

Nice view, fun, easy, and great for families. However, don't go on Monday mornings around 9 because you will hear trash trucks and it kills the mood
