We had SUCH a great time on this hike. It’s a beautiful hike along a stream with a bunch (seven?) of waterfalls. (Also called Seven Sisters). There are literal oasis, as the palm trees spring up along the water. So much fun. Get there early....More

A wonderful short hike. We saw several lizards, ravens, and a snake. There were a number of stream crossings, but nothing difficult. You need a hat, sunscreen, good shoes, and lots of water. We went on a cooler weekend in early June.
