The trailhead is correctly marked but it is not easy to see from your car. It is on the left side as you approach and is marked with a metal gate.

Nice, fun, easy trail to some pretty awesome swimming holes and waterfalls! Trailhead isn't marked by gate anymore though, it's furthest to the left once you get to coordinates, there's a small opening to start of trail.

Great easy trail for the entire family, all ages! 2 waterfalls where you can cliff jump and swim around. Can be very slippery if it has recently rained!

Easy hike with two great water falls. Steam views and foliage is beautiful. If your so inclined, you can jump off the side of the first waterfall into the waters below.

Very slippery and a bit more technical than easy to get to the actual waterfall. Really beautiful and enjoyable!

This trail is a beautiful, easy trek with a nice payoff. Both falls are worth seeing. The path can be a bit slippery during or after rain but it's still relatively simple to navigate. As stated, lots of branches to go over or under. The hardest part was getting down to the second waterfall lagoon. It was actively raining but there is a lot to hold on to. Definitely worth checking out if you want a casual yet rewarding trek.

Beautiful walk through the forest. about a third of the way in you come to a really awesome small waterfall with swimming hole that you can Cliff jump into. DO IT! you won't regret it. from there the jungle is very beautiful but the end waterfall is kind of anti-climactic, still pretty, but the first one in my opinion was much better.

Great hike, easy for a family with young children. The incline isn’t steep but there are lots of fallen trees to climb over or under.

If you want to go for a swim, the hike down is right before the lookout point. It’s steep, however, so you might not want to attempt with young children. The waterfall pool is refreshing and there’s a Tarzan rope for the adventurous ones. Just watch out for the rock to the right (when you jump).

This was recommended by a local as a relatively easy hike with our toddler in a backpack carrier. It wasn’t strenuous, but a little difficult to navigate with lots of trees and branches to climb over and under! We had to take the little one off our backs and pass her back and forth a bit. The mosquitos were brutal, so have lots of insect repellant! Some really pretty views of the waterfall at the lookout point.

Great waterfall to hike to

Once you reach the end, go back about 25 yards and go up a little. That's how you get to the tree swing! The water is so cool and tastes amazing.

Easy hike but still a workout! Great views and family friendly

Fun, quick hike. The first falls on the way is the better swim spot. If anyone in your group has issues bending down, I'd avoid this trail as you need to bend over to get under many branches 4' and lower. Overall lovely way to spend an
hour!

Beautiful hike through the tropical forest however we thought the trail was difficult to follow as it split off several times. Missed the first waterfall completely and because of the various skill levels,our entire party could not make the climb down to the second waterfall and pool. We met up with another family experiencing the same.
Went back along the trail to find the cut off to the first waterfall - success! Enjoyed the falls and the more adventurous jumped off the rocks into the deep pool below.

Easy but humid.
Watch for the barbed wire.

Relatively easy hike that takes you to not just one, but two beautiful waterfalls. Seemed as though many people stopped after the first one, but keep going! It only gets better from there. Despite rain the night before and morning of our hike, it wasn't too difficult or slippery to navigate.

Fun hike through tropical forest, nice falls too. But continue on to the second falls upstream for a real treat with a rope swing.

Easy hike in and out. Jumping off the top of the falls into the pool below is a must if you make this trip. First waterfall was a lot more fun than the second.
Google maps takes you to private property when searching for this waterfall. Be aware that the trailhead is about 200yrds before the private property on the left. photo of trailhead included.

Short hike to a very beautiful place! A must do if in the area. It's completely safe to jump off the rocks at the falls as we were fortunate to have locals arrive and show us how to do it. Thanks guys!
