I initially thought everyone was exaggerating in the comments. They really aren't. I've done many many hikes and this was pretty intense. Very important to stick to the left side going DOWN once you get to a graffitied sign. Once you start to descend the road gets narrow and slippery. Plan your next 3-4 steps in case you slip. Once i got to the ropes I voluntarily slip down and covered my behind in mud. It was just impossible to go down without falling. You'll reach a small stream of water after you've descended cardiac hill, follow the rope and get ready for the hardest part of the trail. Very narrow, very slippery, not much to hold on to. The fall is amazing and worth it. On the bright side, my 10 year old daughter was with me and did better than I did. It is doable, just be prepared and careful.

Take note of all comments below. I did this yesterday after a fairly decent downpour of rain - it was very muddy and slippery from the point of starting the slow decent down the canyon side. Once I reached "cardiac" hill as i've seen it called it was fairly tricky. Couple of slips to be expected. Tree roots are NOT your friends when wet. Use all ropes and tree branches as support and tread very carefully. Coming back up was a lot easier than heading down. After the crazy part of the descent you'll hit a T-junction. Left to the falls, but right is quite interesting for the first 100m as the trail becomes extremely narrow between dense bushes.

Longer than 2.8, more like 3.3. Easy walk for about half, then scrambling over rocks, roots and boulders for the decent and ascent of the canyon wall. Very technical, and very steep. I would not call this a moderate trail. Smaller kids, like less than 5' tall will struggle with this trail because there are many tall steps/drops. We liked going up better than going down. The pool was not my kinda swimming hole, and it was very busy. The falls were more of a trickle, but the trail was almost completely dry. I will take a dry trail over an impressive waterfall. If this trail was real wet and muddy, like I've heard it can be, it would not have been fun at all. I might do this again, but probably not.

Great hike with plenty of shade along the way. I did it with my 5, 7 and 15. Easy enough for the seven year old and even my five year old enjoyed the ropes for a bit. It was slippery and a few slips in the mud were enough that he wanted me to put him in the ergo(he's small). Great pool and ropes for swimming and jumping in.
