Expensive at $12.50 per person, this hike is great if you have limited time. Overall a nice hike with a waterfall at the mid-point. The payoff for us was the small herd of Big Horn Sheep we encountered. WOW!

Fairly short hike to a waterfall. 2 miles easy to moderate. You can swim in the natural pool when you get to the top.

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

Hubby and I went for a day date here. Hiked the loop that wasn't too strenuous and played in the water on the hike back. We were wet to about knee high but it felt great!

Such an inviting and interesting name for a golf course. Have to look it up and find out what it means. A challenge which caused my handicap to go up. Didn't like that but I did like the course and the test of my lack...More

The pòol at the waterfall is big enough to wade in and to stand or sit below the fall but not big nor deep enough to swim as such.
