Don't kid yourself, this is HARD. Truly amazing, but you are walking through a rain forest so it is wet and slippy and you are climbing over tree roots with every step. some super sketchy parts where if you miss your step climbing over a boulder you are a gonna. I did this hike with Uktimate Hikes, going the other way, maybe this way it would be easier. still, well worth it!
