TRAIL WALKTHROUGH: We will ascend on Rising Sun Trail and get the elevation gain/exposed part of the hike out of the way. On our way we will visit the waterfall, take a break at the Tropical Terrace ruins and head back on Solstice trail back to the parking lot. This is a moderate, family friendly hike but still a nice workout.

PARKING FEE: There is no cost in to park at the meeting point and at the trail head.

MY FRIEND SAID I CAN DO THIS HIKE, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT?
We take your safety quite seriously, and would not like for you to attend a hike you’re not ready for. You know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suite your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
