Beautiful trail. I would not consider this an "easy" trail by any means though. I would recommend you go after a few dry days. Otherwise, it's extremely muddy and slippery. Don't worry about muddy shoes because in maybe 5 minutes you will clean them with the 13ish creek crossings. Highly recommend a good hiking stick. We found a Bamboo stick at the first creek crossing that helped tremendously. You will get ate up by mosquitos as well. A good time though.

Trail head was really hard to find since the trail is REALLY overgrown. It’s a short hike. Beautiful! Be careful of the wet rocks. They are SLIPPERY. My husband fell flat on his back. But you can play in the water and swim if you wanted.

Perfect easy hike. Make sure you go all the way down to the banyan tree and climb down, definitely worth it. Bring some bug spray!

This is a really cool trail. I was alone the entire time and never saw another soul. The first pool is only a few minutes down the path. When it forks go right. Then travel down stream to the next few pools and falls. You need to rappel down the banyon tree. It's fun.
