This is an easy hike that would be easy to do in a couple hours. It follows a clear, wide, dirt path and ends at a nice waterfall. The whole thing has a pretty gentle grade.
It has pretty high traffic, especially on a nice day. There also isn't much parking, so that could be an issue as well.
Features: River/Creek — Waterfall
The trail is very easy to follow because it's a wide dirt path from beginning to end.
It starts on Horsethief Park Trail and continues past the intersection with Ring the Peak Trail. Horsethief Park Trail goes left here and makes up part of the Ring the Peak Trail. Stay on the big path, NOT
Ring the Peak Trail. Now you'll be on the Pancake Rocks Trail
Eventually, you'll see a big forest service sign that has Pancake Rocks and Horsethief Falls on it. Go towards Horsethief Falls. From here, you're on the final stretch to the falls.
The falls are pretty cool, they cascade down large rocks. You can climb around on the rocks and get different views of the waterfall as well.
