I had a great time, it was hot and real dry when the trail leaves the creek, the afternoon cloud cover was nice.
I started about 9:30, the lot had about 5 cars (about 25, when I got back @ 3:30) fairly easy hike most of the way. When you get to the first water crossing, you can go straight across (big jump) or stay to the left for the more interesting trail. Both trails meet up at the second water crossing.
For your water activity, the furtherup the creek you go, the nicer it is, less people, better pools, but also a bit less accessable, more challenging. I tested many side trails to the water, some turned up great pools, some nothing or a great look from a 50 foot cliff.
I hiked about 6 miles up, before getting distracted by a beautiful area down by the creek that required a closer look, lots of fish, remote camp sites and swim areas.
Next trip I will spend more time lounging by the water and less time hiking .... I think :D
