Waterfall and cliffs are at the start of the hike. Past the falls is a pretty good uphill incline. Farthest point is a short that comes back to the main linear trail.

The Preserve was truly a treat. We enjoyed an 80-foot waterfall after only about a half-mile hike. The falls were beautiful and the sound of the water is unique on the travertine falls. The caves were interesting and we had never seen anything quite like...More

I was disappointed the trail to the top of the ridge was closed. The waterfall was OK but not spectacular. No restroom facilities.

Yes and so are humans, if you can ever find the place. Well hidden and no signs! But Seriously, I think you'll need to keep dogs on a leash. I saw several people there with their dogs on a leash.
