It's uphill all the way with this trail. Difficult but definitely worth it when you get to the falls. Absolutely beautiful!

This is one of my favorite trails. Pretty hard, but the waterfall at the top is great! We took a group here and everyone also loved it even though it was difficult. Worth it!

This is super hard!! Lots of steps and completely uphill. Make sure to take breaks as needed. It is well worth the hike. In total it was 6.25 miles round trip.
