Fun hike with great scenic views with a waterfall to swim in at the end

Really moderate because of the elevation gain and a small area of rock scramble next to cliffs. Be sure to have shoes with good grip. Awesome views and the waterfall is worth it.

This is definitely a "moderate" hike, not easy. I'm an avid hiker and in my mid 20s. There is a lot of up and downs, as well as loose footing and high steps in a few places. The hike wasn't too hard, but it definitely isn't "easy".

That being said it's super beautiful. You get to see the waterfall, as well as an amazing overlook about a 4th of the way down the canyon. Look out for the arch at the overlook!! It's really neat.

If you have 4WD, there was a parking lot that starts about 0.6 miles down the trail that we passed. We saw a lot of 4WD cars there and you could start there. I don't know how to get to it, but I'm sure you could figure it out from a map.

Great hike, wear shoes that have traction! Because it was wet and muddy! Best to go on a clear day as fog decreases your view, but still was worth it!

Great short hike, fairly well maintained. Dry conditions, I would rate a Moderate difficulty due to steepness in places and loose gravel causing slipping if not careful. Beautiful hike!

Awesome trail with a big payoff of the top of a giant waterfall and the magnificent canyon at the end. Description says "Easy" but there are a few spots that are moderately difficult for those not in ok shape. Saw more than a couple of people without water but take some with, you'll need it on the way out!

Did this in the rain a few days ago but totally worth it or the falls. We didn’t get to see much as the valleys was covered in fog but it added to the jungle feel!
