Easy hike that follows along creek/ river. Gorgeous canopy and wide level trail. The sounds of moving water accompany this awesome hike- keep going past Mouse Trap falls for more beauty and less traveled trail. At least for us today.

We stopped here to eat lunch on a recent backpacking trip. The falls are so pretty and cool looking they almost look fake! We had a great time sitting on the rocks, eating our lunch, enjoying the beautiful scenery.

My hubby and I hiked to the falls today. It was a nice, easy hike along the bubbling creek. We stopped at the falls and grabbed a drink and snacks from our backpack. Great hike. Lots of pretty scenery along the way.

Is a great hike relatively easy. However, it is pretty far out of the way. We hiked in the summer and we saw more people than we thought we would. For such an out-of-the-way place, it was a bit more crowded than we expected

Trail is not bad considering you are in the mountains. Temperature was perfect. An easy two mile hike to and from. Lots of areas to stop at and enjoy along the way. We had five children with us ranging from 2 to 11 which was...More
