***After the front gate to the trail, there’s going to be a sign and a arrow pointing to the actual trail.. that is a false trail. Keep going up the asphalted road until you see a a trail to your right going up and down there you’ll see a orange ribbon and sprays to the start of the trail. *** Pretty easy trail with moderate elevations with awesome views. It is indeed pretty muddy and you have to cross the stream 2 times to get to the waterfall. RECOMMEND WATERSHOES!!! You can jump off the waterfall and go for a swim. ALSO RECOMMEND BUGSPRAY!!!

Good all-around hike. Moderate is probably accurate if you don’t regularly hike. Loads of bugs and potential to contract lepto—be conscious. As of 9/19 trail is marked with orange paint on trees, rocks, and branches to indicate path. You will cross the river three times. Highly recommend shoes or hiking boots and extra socks.

Beautiful waterfalls. Incredibly cold water that feels super refreshing. Keep going behind the main falls for another, smaller water fall and pool. Muddy and slippery, but as long as you’re careful, you’re all good. Not too hard, but not the easiest because of slippery conditions and a few hill/stair sections.

Really fun hike but very muddy! Be prepared to get your feet wet as you have to cross the stream 4 times total at least

Not for the faint of heart or uncommitted. Elevation rolls moderately. What makes this hike tough are the rocks, roots and slipperiness of rain forest mud. Expect humidity, showers and a Jurrasic World adventure, sans dinosaurs! Falls are in a grotto & the water is mountain cold (and feels great)! WORTH IT, for the jungle, Indiana Jones scenery. Do not wear any clothes or shoes you cherish, but go!

Amazing and challenging, but because of the mud, absolutely Hard, not moderate. Took us 2 hours up and everyone of the 4 people in my party fell...at least once. Felt like a climb more than just a hike. Spectacular views and waterfall though....super busy today too, but that made it fun...especially when I took a pretty hard fall and was lucky enough to have a nurse behind me!
