“Crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Not impressive enough (in the dry fall) to be worth the crowds. You might have better luck in the spring or early fall!

“Good hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We hiked to the lower, middle and upper pools. The hike to the lower poos would be good for all ability levels. The middle and uppers pools require more stamina and have a lot more climbing over rocks. Our kids liked getting wet by the lower pool.

“Go to the upper pools”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

The lower pools trail isn't very impressive, especially if the waterfall isn't flowing strongly. But if you take the somewhat more difficult trip to the upper pools, you won't regret it! The views are very impressive! Be sure to take the Kayenta trail back, it's a lot more fun and not as hard going down.

“Variety in trail levels - beautiful all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

You can choose to take the trail to the lower, middle or upper pools - we went to all of the above. They are all quite easy trails, although not all are wheelchair or stroller friendly. Great to get to the upper pools in its sort of hidden away spot. Well worth the little hike up.

“Not bad if you make it to the top”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

This trails starts pretty easy but get a bit more difficult later on. It is not very difficult as there were many very young kids. Some parts are interesting but it is overall so-so. The "pond" at the top is not impressive. The trail is quite busy.
