nice easy hiking to the waterfall. we were on a ranger-led hike with a super nice and knowledgeable guide. the temperature was perfect (November) but I would not want to be here in Summer! scenery is mostly all rocks and then you get to a 60' waterfall at the top. lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Went early in the morning and done the 8am tour with Chris the ranger, don't normally do this kind of tour but he was excellent and there was so much going on right in front of us that we would of missed had we not been on the tour.
The tour takes around 2 hours just under 2 miles with regular stops along the way and is worth doing, the waterfall was worth the walk for.
Be sure to bring plenty of water for the trip.
Leave the exhibition to the end end of the tour it makes better viewing.
Need to be fit enough to walk on uneven ground and go early if affected by the heat.

Easy hike up to the water fall well worth the hike, go early to avoid the midday sun and take some water to drink, don't miss.

This is a great and easy hike in the canyon. A little bit hilly but not to difficult at all. Round trip around an hour. The waterfall is beautiful. Take a picnic and face the city zinc relax. A great way to spend the morning.

This is a lovely two hour round-trip hike if you take your time and wish to dawdle over the scery. Many photogenic sites. The waterfall is quite nice. The best time to visit is mid-afternoon, so you can do most of the hike in the shade after the sun goes behind the mountain to the west. Don't go too late as it can get dark rather quickly.
