The great thing about this hike is that once you get up on the hill it is easy to visit Cold Spring Canyon in the same hike. The tough thing is that the trail is overgrown, so hand-clippers may come in handy. I lost my hat in the branches several times. Walking behind the waterfall was a trip highlight. The Orb Weaver Spider and the Canyon Treefrog we saw were both the same size: about as big as half my thumb. -saw bear scat and cougar paw prints, but didn't post the pictures. Some of these ruins are in pretty bad shape and the walls are coming down. Catch them before they're gone.
