I did not like Eaton Canyon. It was not that scenic, easy, short, and way too popular for how crappy the trail was. Also, the stupid website says they’re open from Sunrise to Sunset. We got there at 6:45 a.m. and the sign on the gate said it doesn’t open until 7:30 and closes at 7 pm. -_- You couldn’t put that on the website? So we parked on the street and walked our way down.
The trail gets confusing and the markers don’t help. We were following some folks who looked like they’d been there before and were going to cross a bridge and go straight up until I realized that on Yelp, a person posted a picture of them UNDER the bridge. So we doubled back and went the proper way. The people who were ahead of us followed. But never let me lead the pack because I will want to cross every dangerous fallen tree, even if there’s an easier way to get across, hahahaha.
We got to the waterfall and I knew it was going to be disappointing, but I had no idea it was going to be so packed!
People are reckless and retarded. On a side note, people do die here or injure themselves. There are different trails to take and yes, some are dangerous, like the path to get above this waterfall. Not sure what happened today, but a helicopter had to air lift someone.
Yeah, I’m not doing this trail again. But at least I got some nice sky shots after we passed under the bridge. More on that tomorrow. I’ll be doing a sky series ♥
