Great hike anytime of year. If you want to see real falls - go when the snow is melting. Full family made the hike. Some of the switchback areas need repair - slightly dangerous in some areas.

Great hike. Definitely strenuous/moderate at points. We completed this with small and older kids. All made it safe. Some dangerous spots. Gorgeous views. Cool rock formations.

For a gorgeous area this hike falls short... mostly man made rock path. Nice views but straight path with no real interesting characteristics. The only hike at Red Rock we have done so far that we would not repeat.

Found this trail and was quite pleased with it. Nice area to walk our dog and close to where we were staying at Duck Creek RV. They have a great map to get at the Wetland area and has other dog walking areas to go and check out. Happy we found this place!

The lower trail is definitely a bike trail. My friend and i started at the upper trail and we had to carry our bikes for most of the hike/cycling.
