I went when the fall was dry and it was still beautiful. Short and pretty easy hike, although the rocks can be slippery. The trailhead is pretty difficult to find. Would love to go back after some rain to see the fall.

Hiked this trail to the cascades today. It can be challenging in places, but is worth every minute of it. The hike is beautiful, and the cascades are breathtaking.

Absolute blast! 1st time doing a trail like this. Got over my head a little bit but it started out easier and built up to the tougher spots. Beautiful scenery. Will be back soon.

Not very scenic. The trail was very well maintained, but not very well marked. Possibly they could offer maps at the trail entrance?

We went after days of rain. There were some parts of the trail that were a little tough, and it was slippery in places. The waterfall was full and beautiful. The hike was wonderful! Definitely plan to go back during each season.

Great hill workout in a small space. Beautiful scenery. Trail a bit narrow and precarious at some points. Four trails that can be combined for 3 miles total. The Great Wall trail, while amazingly picturesque, is better for walking than running. Gate was locked when we arrived for the 7 am opening of the trails, but they were only about 5 minutes late. Will definitely hit this trail again.

Beautiful short loop. Great for a quick running workout. The last few weeks spiderwebs across the trail have been kind of bad. Love this one though!
