Darwin Falls is both a tourist destination and a water supply for the nearby resort.  The easy one mile trail follows the creek most of the way up through the beginning of Darwin Canyon to the first waterfall (which is pictured above). A part-scrambling and part-climbing trail actually continues from there and passes around eight other main waterfalls, as it ends up at China Garden Spring (which is outside of the park boundary). However, I personally don't recommend going beyond the first waterfall because it doesn't seem to be the safest of trails. The first waterfall is a great destination anyway and visiting this oasis is a fun way to spend half of a day.

This sign provides a nice reminder to stay out of the water in Darwin Canyon, and just admire it from a distance:

During most of the hike, you are following the creek:
The canyon gets greener the further you go into it:
