Today we packed a lunch and headed up Wilde Road to the Appleton Canyon Trail. It was a beautiful relatively easy hike. You are definately climbing and it's a bit slippy in areas as it's rained so much lately but otherwise all good. The trees and surrounding areas all look very lush and green. The falls were raging, loud and gorgeous. We hiked for about 30 minutes to the little bench at Bandit Falls before we stopped for some snacks. We met several happy hikers coming and going along the way. Round trip with a stop for snacks was just over an hour and a half. Perfect for the kids!
