Any early start allow us to see the Javelina grazing on the grass before lots of people arrived. For a northwesterner they are interesting to see and cute; not a pest like they are to many southwesterners. We took the trail to the waterfall, but it was closed before you get to the main part. It's more of a drip wall than a waterfall. We "hiked" the canyon trail. There was lots of boulder hopping. Because of the drought there was not much water in the stream. The west trail the Gowan trail gives the best view. It's a bit steep so take you time or heed the warning and don't go.
