Great hike. Easy walking with a couple of waterfalls to hike up and down which would rate it moderate.

Was great. Good workout. I took my 7 yr old boy and my 18 month old. Make sure you have a baby carrier if you're taking little ones. Also make sure you are very sure footed

That was the best! List of action climbing, runs along water. My 9 yr old son loved it!

This was a fun hike and when you get to the bottom of the waterfall, the trail continues. However, most of it is under water at the moment.

The trail and canyon were beautiful. Hike back up was difficult as you are walking up hill the entire way back. Was around 3.5 miles.
