did this at the end of july, it was really hot, if youre doing it during the summer bring water, it is kid friendly. the hike there has a slight incline, nothing bad, the road that you hike on is a little messed up, but its nothing big. Once you reach a certain point you can either keep going or go down to these natural water slides that were absolutely beautiful. they slide into a creek, and there were multiple creeks for all ages. the rocks that you have to walk on once you get to the water slides are slippery so I recommend water shoes of some type. took us about 45 minutes each way to get there
