    The hike to the waterfall was a difficult one but beautiful the entire way. Our dogs loved it and were very wore out afterwards. We saw several people and several other dogs. Everyone was very nice and friendly.

    Beautiful trail!

    This was a beautiful trail that I was excited about to go back and take my huskies as it's 'dog friendly, and while there was a large group there with 6 dogs, and other dogs with other folks, I personally wouldn't recommend it for taking furbabies. Most of the dogs there the day we were there were off leash, which I personally was not a fan of, but I can see how off leash dogs and humans without holding a leashed dog would be much easier. I #1 don't believe you should have off leash on a heavily traffic trail nor #2 to have my boys on leashed there I can only see potential accident after accident if slipped or pulled the wrong way. Lots of rocks to climb over and places to really watch your footing or you can slip and fall very easily. Outside of that it was beautiful and nice trail to take hands free so you can concentrate on your balance over multiple areas. :)

    Show proper etiquette, respect for others

    The trail is gorgeous, adventurous, a good physical workout and you come away with an exhilarating sense of contentment. This 76 year old man hiked it alone after a recent rain. The air was fresh, the temperature was perfect for hiking and the overcast sky was perfect taking advantage of the multitude of photography opportunities. I started early in the morning, the first one on the trail, and I stayed until late in the afternoon. Many hikers came out that perfect day, most with their pets of various sizes. On the return hike I encountered four spots where the dog owners allowed their "babies", their beloved animals, to leave their piles of waste on the trail. Okay, take your dogs hiking, but show a little respect for nature's beauty and the hiker's that, believe it or not, are not in love with your "babies". Bag it, seal it and carry it out with you.
