Hike Summary: A beautiful 1.1 mile walk each way. The Easy trail is easy, but the Moderate is a little tougher than I would call moderate. The trail winds up through the route of an old water pipeline from the mining days, and ina few places it is actually a steel wlakway over the canyon bottom. Mostly, it si simply tail, and the stream, pools and waterfalls are beautiful.
