This isn’t a easy hike, took us about 3 hrs in and out, you walk thru bush, and cross 11 creeks of slippery rocks. This was definitely a challenge, it was so worth it! Waterfall was flowing and great pond for swimming. Definitely recommended.

You walk through bush and get your legs beat up if wearing shorts, then you walk on slippery rocks in the creek and probably get your feet wet, then you arrive at a waterfall, which is nice to take a swim in. Took us about three hours back and forth. Recommended.

Great beginners hike.

Maybe we took a route that was more rigorous, not sure! I've taken several hikes and I would not consider it "easy". We absolutely loved the challenge but we followed the creek and hopped from rock to rock, went through rough bush and tight areas. We had many athletes with us and we were really challenged! It was so worth it and we all feel amazing that we did it. We loved the experience!

You are basically walking through someone's private property, we saw workers in the farms and no trespassing signs. I would skip this trail, we turned around halfway through after seeing the property owners.

This is NOT an easy trail. Not a big elevation change but a lot of scrambling over slippery rocks, tree roots, and many creek crossings. Easy to lose the trail so be sure after about 1/2 mile you follow the pink ribbons on the trees. A small waterfall at the end runs into a small, swimmable pool.
