I've done this one twice and both times it was amazing. All of the falls were very active and was well worth the climb. Does get a bit packed if you go later in the day so I advise hitting it early.

We hiked from the top ( skyline dr) down to the top of the first falls. (Huge). Very gradual grade, with several wading pools. Beautiful trail. About a 5 mile round trip doing it this way.
