Comments: Started out on what I later found out was the waterfall trail, at the west most ; there was some water at the first waterfall (enough for the dog to play), the second one was completely dried out. My companions and I continued past the second waterfall, uphill, to a rocky trail which led us to the park boundary. We found what resembled a trail that continued along the boundary fence, traversing along it, downhill then back uphill. We eventually made our way back downhill and connected with the trail that headed south connecting to the first waterfall area. Overall the hike was great, we passed one group within our two hours there.
