Mary Jane Falls Trail

Great Hike for beginners, but otherwise uneventful, too busy with other hikers. The switchbacks are annoying and seem unnecessary, except for perhaps very unfit hikers. Falls are interesting yet disappointing, maybe more spectacular after it has been raining.

It was peaceful, well kept, and pleasant to walk. The water was an added bonus. Dogs are not allowed due to the wildlife and the pathway has both paved and pebble options. Would walk it again.

Extreme Trail, but loved it. Does take time to reach the overlook and back as the trail does not loop, so give yourself at least a 1.5 hours, to make your way back, depending on your fitness level, as you don't want to be making your way back in the dark on this trail. I always see Mule Deer on this hike, as long as you are not too loud, as they spook easily. Well maintained trail.

Winter/spring best time to go. There is actually nice little watery reward that isn't there in summer

This is by far the best & most dangerous hike over at Red Rock. Took the rocky gap 4x4 road up to the trail. We started around 8:04 got back to truck around 6:12. This includes some stops for pictures and lunch!

We were only able to get to the arch as it was already 3:30ish - Weather was approving fast - wind was over 40MPH then it started snowing, so we were not able to climb to summit.

As mentioned before it's one of the best hikes, but the snow and bad weather makes it a little bit harder. Definitely camping out there next time.

Once you passed the trail signed it's about 2.0 miles. There won't be no more trail, so you're on your own. Follow those rocks guides & arrows left by hikers.

The waterfall at the end was awesome! Make sure you go during the winter/spring months so you don't miss it!

The view and the "tank" of water was great! A couple hairy spots with the dogs but not a hard trail!
