Took 60-80 minutes for a great hike. As we continued 'up' into the glen, kept expecting it to be done, only yo find ever-more-interesting views. Really amazing at the 'top', with huge rock chunks on the floor of the glen. Water wasn't strong, but it...More

This is a really neat, rugged hiking spot with rocks and water. Bring an extra pair of shoes and let your feet get wet. At the end of the trail is a cool waterfall. It is a gorgeous hike.

This was a great hike. We did an out and back through the glen and enjoyed the wonderful peaceful scenery very much. It is very beautiful with the running stream and beautiful surroundings. Bring a picnic!

This is such a beautiful and fairly short hike (about 2 miles there and back, same trail going in and coming out)! The hike starts in the woods next to a small trickling creek. The terrain surrounding the creek turns into this gorgeous gorge, with...More

It was about 88 degrees with a dewpoint of 68 degrees. Brought plenty of water but it wasn't needed as the glen is cool. We took our time and about 40 minutes later we were at the waterfall. My wife stayed behind while I climbed...More
