Even from the name, you can get a sense of what this hike has in store: you'll walk up a canyon on a trail to find a waterfall.
Simple enough, but who doesn't love a 40-foot waterfall in the bottom of a narrow gorge?! No wonder Trail Canyon Falls is such a popular hike.
Even though this hike is popular and dog-friendly, there's still a fair bit of elevation gain along its distance, and you'll have to do a bit of scrambling to actually reach the base of the waterfall.
There are also several stream crossings along the way as you head up the canyon.
Take care if the water is high in the spring, and be prepared to get your feet wet. Sources: https://californiathroughmylens.com/trail-canyon-falls/ https://www.hikespeak.com/trails/trail-canyon-falls/
