Did this hike yesterday it was great if you like pushing yourself. It took me just over an hour to get down and about 1:20 to get back up. It was probably one of the hardest hikes I have done in awhile. Please do not do this hike in the heat of the day, very exposed. I did hang out for about 2-3 hrs at the bottom. I was meeting up with a group that was doing the grand and got to watch them ride through lava falls. I attach a link of the hike out. http://www.movescount.com/moves/move185154103?heatmap#.WgCefGuKYLc.link

If you really want a good perspective of the trail, use Goggle earth instead. There is one fairly flat portion just before the final descent. The river itself is fairly anti-climatic but it's good for bragging rights to complete the hike. 3 hours down, 5 hours up(average). Whitmore Canyon Trail is a much easier way to get down to the Colorado River.

The description of this trail is misleading. There are large rapids at the bottom but I wouldn't call it a waterfall. The trail is grueling and hard to find at times, but it was fun to go to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back in less than a day.
