This was a strenuous hike down to the falls. We had to go through water ( literally walking through water across the way) and we even crawled across a log. It was a fun time but tiring in the end.

Amazing falls but only go on a weekday. I went on a Sunday and it was too crowded to enjoy. There are rangers directing people on the weekends. They said few people are there on weekdays.

Moderate hike to the falls, try to wear appropriate shoes for both hiking and wading through the river/ rock hopping. The falls itself is gorgeous and grand, however it does tend to get very busy very quickly here.

Started @8a. Already quite a few in the parking lot. We actually took the service road down because we didn't feel up to a true hike. We made it to the overlook and took a less traveled trail to play in the water above the falls - it is the black trail on the park map. Had a lot of fun playing in the water.
We made it back to the parking lot @12 and it was packed.
