Comments: I hiked this trail today and enjoyed it very much. Started hiking towards the overlook once we started and we were able to stop and enjoy some views of the canyons. As the trail decends the Trees begin to surround you. The trail down to the creek trail becomes a bit steep so watch your step. The climate has been a bit dry so the water in the creek beds was stagnent and rather low but I'm sure after a good rain it is running and a lot more pleasant. The hikes back up on the falls trail or through the woodland trail are rather steep. It took us about a hour and half to trek all of the trails over a total of about 3 miles. I would def. recommend this hike. We enjoyed it very much. Maybe I'll get the chance to go back after a good rain and catch more wildlife.
