This is an out and back trail (0.7 mi each way). Awesome waterfalls for swimming. Very heavy traffic.

So worth it. This hike can be hard if you're not use to change in elevation, tons of humidity, climbing, heat, etc. But it's short and if you take it easy I'm pretty confident most can accomplish and enjoy the beautiful waterfall! It gets busy. Swimming in the waterfall is awesome!

It was lovely. On a hot day you can jump in and cool down. Also a great location to take pictures under the waterfall.

Did this hike back on Feb 2016 trail was a little bit wet and slippery. There were a few waterfalls which were beautiful but a bit crowded.

The Falls were great! I was too busy watching my step that I missed gawking at the rainforest. Obviously a very popular spot, would definitely try to go much earlier if I get another chance!

Beautiful hike and well maintained trail. Took about one hour round trip not including the time spent at the Mina falls. If possible, start the hike as early in the day as possible as the trail gets really crowded and it is a single track trail.

Lots of steps down and lots of steps back. Well worth it.

I came down the Big Tree trail to the falls, and came up this trail. This is a very different hike, as the previous trail was on a hillside and among trees, while this trail stayed close to water, and the ever present flow of the stream over rocks and into pools. It was a great counterpoint to the other trail, and I recommend combining the two to get the full experience.

It was a quick 25-minute walk down in elevation following a river on a thin cement & rock paved trail. The falls at the end of the trail were cool, but a little anti-climatic. The walk back up is a lot of stairs for about 30 minutes, so you should be in fairly good shape to handle it. That said, I was in hiking boots but a lot of kids and older folks were in flip flops and bathing suits or having picnics in their everyday clothes. It was a good short 1-hour hike to get some exercise in for the day but nothing too impressive.
