Any hike by water and ending with a waterfall and swim gets a good review from me! Beautiful hike along a wild river (after a mile, or so) . Saw no one else the whole time- peaceful! No really steep areas except the little descent to the fall from the trail. Slow incline the last mile back up, but not bad!
