This is a bush-whacking hike, with no real trail. The reward is the upper and lower waterfall that almost no one else gets to see. Hikers should be prepared to forge their own trail through beautiful forests and thick stinging nettles. Wear two layers of long pants to avion the sting. Definitely worth the effort.
