This is a great little hike! And during the right time of year (or after a good rain) the falls can be quite impressive. I've been there in July though when it was barely a trickle. You're never far from the resort on this hike, and if I remember correctly you have to cross over a service road. But, for a one-water-bottle hike, it's totally worth it.

I live the crazy life of a full time working, suburban mom of two. It can get stressful. The times I can get out into nature settle me. That moment, when you're standing among the mountains with only the sounds of nature, are the very best stress reliever.
