    Fun quicky

    We hit the trail just before sunrise and the only ones on this trail the whole way. It’s very steep pretty much the whole way. HIGHLY recommend bug spray! Every stop was a chance for those little buggers to get us!

    Great trail!

    This was a great trail to do with our 15lb Jack Russell mix. There is slight elevation gain, but nothing overwhelming. It is a bit rocky in parts and we saw several people (mainly kids) trip on rocks and fall (they were ok) so be careful of your footing. We only made it to the lower falls because of snow on the trail that leads to the reservoir. But the falls were beautiful and there are a lot of places around it to eat a snack or lunch. We will probably try to go back in August with the hope that the snow has melted and we can make it to the top. We saw a lot of dogs on this trail both on and off leash.
