Beautiful water falls! Crossing the river can be difficult but the area you get to is great. You can stay on the same side though and still get to the end waterfall, just cant jump off from that side! Bring sturdy shoes and water.

So incredible. So many water falls. We went a long way. Up rocks. Over streams. We even swam on a small beach at the end of the trail. Sensational. Shoes with sure footing a must. Bring water. This is difficult hiking and you must be in good physical condition.
