Nice easy hike with a great stop at the midpoint to see the waterfall and cool off a bit in the cool water. Enjoyed it a lot but it costed $12.50 per person, which I think is a little steep.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
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.★ ★ ★ ★
