Awesome hike! Make sure to have your permit. The ranger is there to check you in before you step foot on trailhead. Waterfall and streams were all flowing great! Bring a pair of sandals. One of the Creek crossings can get deep. The other two have rocks to walk across on. :)
Can be very difficult on a hot day. Ranger station at the top to make sure people are fit enough to make it down, but it is much more difficult coming back up.
The water was cool and clean enough for swimming, I just wouldn't put your head under to definitely keep from getting sick in the possibly stagnant water.

Start early, it gets hot. Bring more water than you think you need. The way back is uphill with no shade.
