Very fun! Just as long as you don't mind getting very muddy and rained on. It's part of the fun :-)

Went with our family and it was amazing! Definitely worth it. The waterfall isn't very big but the hike was great. Lots of shade and beautiful views.

Hiked it with my family and had a good time. Arrive early for best weather and less people (it rained on us on the way out - the last 1/2 mile - and there were a lot of people coming in on our way out). Otherwise it was a good hike. Lots of scenery and the falls were flowing quite nicely. I would recommend for those looking for a easy to moderate hike.

Muddy when rainy but a well worth it hike! The views of Wiamea Canyon are spectacular!
