We went there a few days ago ( March 2018) with our 5 yr old, 9 yr old , and three adults. We walked all the way down to the waterfall / stream where it opens to the ocean. Very easy walking both ways. Slightly downhill and at parts there aren’t fencing so just hold the little ones hands to make sure they don’t step on the vegetation because it’s actually a cliff that drops down to the ocean. Stay on the paved path. Some parts as you get closer to the water have uneasy footing due to rocks / roots but if walked slow & careful can manage . An elder person being held can walk this slowly to enjoy the views with family. A hidden gem . Make sure to stop at the eatery on the side of the road named “What’s Shakin “ when you are done. Delicious hot food/ smoothies / fruits and lovely people and atmosphere .

If you're looking forward to a workout, this trail is not the one. However, if you are looking for great vistas and fantastic tropical beauty this is it.

short hike down a paved road and to a small rocky beach that is nice for watching waves crash, but not much else.
