My boyfriend and I took this trail. It's somewhat easy to get down, but when you get down to the bottom there's a bridge where the trail continues and it's a pretty far hike. The trail down is pretty nice, it's a back and forth stair case like trail with a somewhat narrow ridge. When you get to the bottom there's a beautiful water area that has great opportunity for picture taking. When you go along the path it can be a bit intimidating because it's still a long way down and the path is a little unsuspecting because it appears to head upwards but it does not go back to the campgrounds. Beautiful trail but the climb back up was more then I suspected!
