Hiking the trail was nice, but the falls are unremarkable. Decent spot for a lunch break. Start early in the day for mist filled views.

Lots of trails, lots to do. Waterfall, rocks to climb, bridges to cross. View of Monterey Bay. Lots of visitors, limited parking. Be sure to get out before sundown! We took longer climbing all over Goat Rock and almost got a ticket when we got back to the car just past sundown. The ranger was NOT understanding!
