The walk to the base of the falls is a pretty easy trek, but a couple of things to note to make the most of it: There's not much of a view from the bottom, and it's worth the scramble up the left side to get to the actual falls.. The beginning of the climb is through the forest and there's some handholds on various trees and branches, but the end is a scramble up some slippery scree. Not a very long climb but I feel this is worth mentioning because it really isn't appropriate for "all skill levels" at that point and IMO worth it to actually see the falls (pictured). Also there's 2 creek crossings, the 1st has a couple single logs to balance on to get across but the 2nd crossing doesn't have any logs. I did it late season so i was able to find some shallow spots to cross, but if it were earlier season, plan to take your shoes off or get wet. Lovely hike!
