The trail was very nice, although one leg of the upstream part of the trail was washed out, so there was no loop. This made for a rather crowded hike, with tons of tourists trooping back and forth. We were treated to pretty close views of a bighorn ram, who posed atop a rock and clambered around the rocks for our benefit. The waterfall was very nice, although the big cottonwood tree next to the plunge pool blocked views for good photography. I would rate this a 5 except for the hordes hiking the trail, which detracted from the experience.★ ★ ★ ★

Had a nice leisurely stroll up and back down the canyon to see Tahquitz Falls and even saw a young bighorn sheep in the distance. This is a nice hike to do if you have some free time in Palm Springs.
