A quick afternoon cool off. Even when the falls are dry there are some nice pools to swim and beaches to relax. There is some rock climbing skills needed to reach the upper Falls.

Great for all folks to get down... getting to the falls require a lot more skills climbing over rocks. Good time if you can when the water is flowing.

Beautiful hike. There are times when you have to climb over boulders. The big waterfall only had a trickle of water. I'll be back another time when there is more water.

Great hike. For a short distance it is somewhat strenuous. The sun beats on you and bugs are out in full force but if you leave them alone and wear bug spray they don't bother you to much. You have to climb up and over rocks and some are slippery. But it's a great workout and there is much to see along the way if you don't have much time and can only do a portion of it.

Do NOT try to go the whole way to the falls with dogs. There are very large boulders that make it extremely difficult for them and for you. This was a very fun hike and the falls are beautiful. I will definitely do it again WITHOUT my dogs. Also wear closed toed shoes. Chacos or tevas might seem like a good idea because of the water but the sand and small rocks will get into them and make it a very unpleasant hike.

Fairly easy hike into the falls. There are a couple of areas where you have to climb over some big rocks, but the biggest waterfall is worth it. The water is 65 degrees and very clear. Great swimming!
