This is NOT a super easy hike - wear good shoes and be ready for an adventure. The beautiful waterfall at the end makes it worth it!

Wonderful short hike! Love the short jaunt through the bamboo forest and think switching back and forth up the steam to the waterfall. Highly encourage you get under the falls for a refreshing experience.

Super awesome short hike through bamboo, up a stream that ends at a nice waterfall.

Would love to hike this trail but me and a friend were unable to find the beginning! We kept running into the "do not enter zones". Any guidance for future finding would be appreciated!

Great short hike. Parts are very muddy so wear appropriate shoes. The trail is easy to follow but the stream offers options to stray from the beaten path and explore a bit. Both treks I've made have been moderately trafficed, plenty of time not in sight of other until you get to the falls itself. it can get a bit crowded at the falls. Can make photo ops difficult as people are usually hanging out in the falls. Still the falls are beautiful and a great places to rest before heading back. Highly recommend if you have a free afternoon

We decided to go today and the weather did turn on us and shower us with rain. It made the trails very muddy and at some rocky spots, very slippery to walk on. As others have mentioned and recommended, do stay along the river as the trails are not clearly marked. There are different pathways and some are harder to trudge through than others. It is a moderate hike and although its easier for adults, not as easy for a 4 and 6 year old. My girls took it like champs though and made it. Overall, the hike was worth it to see the beautiful waterfall at the top. I would recommend, but maybe not with younger kids. Bring extra change of clothes, towel for later, a backpack with lunch or snacks, and bug spray! Good water /walking shoes as well unless you don't mind your tennis shoes getting muddy and wet.
