Amazing experience even though my wife and I didn’t make it to the top. We were totally unprepared. We started late in the morning and didn’t have the proper hiking boots or gear. Camel pack, hiking boots and hiking stick could be very helpful. I was caring a 30 pound back pack with Gatorade, water and cameras. Was wearing walking shoes. We still had the time of our lives enjoyed the jungle, monkeys and those insects that made a very loud noise. I think they are called chicharas. The trail is awesome! Steep in some areas, rocky, tree roots, tree trunks, and muddy but all manageable, you can either go under over or around obstacles. We will be returning to conquer Maderas.!

Best and only place in the world to go volcano boarding but the hike up is quite tough lots of big loose rocks. absolutely unforgettable

There were some tricky spots for footing in the rocks and a chain that you can hold for support only some of the way going up to the waterfall. Beautiful hike, you can hear the monkeys calling all over.

Much more difficult than the alltrails review. Definitely worth the challenge but don't be fooled, it's hard as hell. Mostly mud and monkey climbing so just be prepared, the way you go up is the same way back down. People with knee trouble might struggle.

Petite balade agréable. Ne pas manquer le parc des papillons.

Superbe rando, mais à mon avis c’est plus dans la catégorie hard que moderate. Un guide est vivement recommandé ne serait-ce que pour voir les animaux. La vue au premier view point est époustouflante. Malheureusement pour nous la suite était dans le brouillard.

There are two ways to get to top, the one less traveled is much harder and require ropes for last leg of climb. Enjoyed the challenge.

Really is easy climb if you're in good physical condition. If you don't do exercise or moderate walking then it's difficult. Have done it several times, got down sliding & walking

Ferry ride over and a one hour drive to trail head. Remote spot with monkeys along the trail. Be sure to have plenty of water for the tropics conditions. Cool pond atop to cool off.

The hike up takes about an hour and then you can either board or run down the side!
