Was a good easy hike until you get to the trail that leads down to the falls. the trail down to the falls is very steep. If you take the right side you end up sliding down on your bottom two or three times. If you go to the left you manage yourself over and down rocks.

Overall the water is good. There is a place to jump from a rock into the water below, I was told it is about a 15 foot drop into the water below.

Would recommend for those who have experience climbing, or those who are bored with an easy hike.

Easy hike, followed by a very steep descent down to a waterfall. Fun place to swim & relax. Can be crowded and noisy at times, so not recommended for those looking for solitude.

Really steep incline down into the revine where the falls and swimming hole were. I was not prepared for that! But the PCT was really relaxing and beautiful to travel!

The water was refreshing and it wasn't too crowded when I went (early afternoon) but began to get more populated around 3pm.
