Trail was moderate basically a dirt road the whole way. It gets steep and in some parts if it has rained really muddy so wear hiking shoes if possible. I wore some track shoes so it got really slippery in some places. You will see some cattle and horses along the way, and some shots of the river. It gets pretty steep towards the end and your heart rate will get going. Then it opens up to the most amazing waterfall I have ever seen. Make sure you go to the top falls and explore behind the rocks! Pay the extra 3 dollars to park in the parking lot you will be glad you did trust me! Trail is four stars but the waterfall is 5 stars!

AWESOME hike to the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen! The hike is longer than the 2.5 miles one way that is advertised. More like 3. So six miles round trip. Very steep in parts but totally worth the hike. Definitely bring your for wheel drive car so you can drive down to the parking lot. It’s a steep muddy road and if you can’t drive down it you have to walk and that would add another 3 miles to your trip!! But this is a must see!!!

This trail is not as easy as it looks.. Park at the top and walk/run down.. or if you have a suv you can drive down and park at the parking lot 1.5km down.. MAKE SURE YOU GET A WRIST BAND AT THE TOP BY THE ROAD! It’s $8 otherwise they might turn you away right at the waterfall.. total hike from the road 9.6km
Bring lots of water
