Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile

The water was so nice and cool Ina hot summer day that it really was breath taking! The hike to the falls was easy which is great when you have little kids with you! The water was awesome. There really aren't many words to describe how it felt to be under that waterfall!

they have a few short trails, fit for most casual hikers... when we went, it was rather busy on the trails, even though it was a hot day... good photo stops...

Great, easygoing trail for families. Many sidetracks to hidden spots along the rapids. Lots of photo opportunities, views are awesome.

Our family, 2 adults, Snow Lab and 3 children (12,15,and 17) walked the hiking trail and were able to view Muddy Creek Falls and the swimming area under it. It was breathtaking. Water falls along the entire trail. Did not go swimming..as there was a rapid water flow. Was gorgeous to view. Trail had a couple awkward spots, but otherwise was worth it!

This hike was a real treat. The kids did not wear their bathing suits, but had other clothes in the car, so we left them get in the falls. It is very slippery. Someone fell and cut their elbow while we were there. But our kids had a blast. A great memory.
