We took this short hike before 10am to beat the heat. It was easy, and went along a little creek, in partial shade. At the end was a nice waterfall where you can wade into the water to cool off. Great surprise!

This is a very nice and fairly easy hike. We encourage you to take this one early morning to enjoy a nicer weather and experience and avoid the heat which will automatically make it somewhat more strenuous. The canyon, the rocks and boulders are beautiful,...More

A lite to moderate hike with cultural interruptive stops along the way. Beautiful water falls rewards at the end. Bring or wear your bathing suit and enjoy the refreshing pool with the falls cascading down to soothe your body.

we went in early spring & experienced full waterfall & was wonderful, went again middle of , waterfall was still there & flowing nicely, while pretty warm if you go early easy 1 mile hike each way well worth entrance price if waterfall is there.

What you should expect: the entire loop trail is about a mile in length, and takes roughly an hour. You will probably want to go into the pool under the waterfall, so dress appropriately for that. (We were visiting after a season with good rainfall,...More

Not handicap accessible on the trail, but the visitors center is still worth going to!
