This track is pretty easy, mostly flat so not that physically challenging. The only challenge is the walk through the sand dunes due to the steepness as well as the strong winds. And another challenge is the muddy track. It gets too muddy if you take the walk from the sand dunes on the left side then loop around the lake as you approach the waterfalls. Pretty cute waterfall and an easy walk back however be aware that you will have to cross the stream (very shallow) so your shoes will end up muddy and soaking wet. Otherwise a fun place to hike. Parking can be competitive so be there early. Also if you want bring a boogie board so you can do some sand boarding!
