Most of the trail is pretty flat, just really rocky so watch your footing! The very end gets steep where the falls are. Great trail, but can get challenging when it gets hot. Be prepared to have alot of water!

Overall a nice trail. Mostly pretty rocky and it has some areas where you will have to take your time. the view of the falls makes it worth it. Don't come on a sunny day, there is little to no shade most of the trail. I took my two German Shepherd dogs and they seemed to like it.
