Warm and sunny day in July. Temps about 90+, blue sky and a mild breeze. The trail is crushed stone and fairly flat the whole way. A nice easy walk and a little side spur to the waterfall if you choose to do it. Wildlife was out, we saw a deer next to the trail (< 25 yds from us), bugs were minimal.★ ★ ★ ★
