Beautiful! Muddy, slow scrambles most of the way, awesome pay-off at the falls. Get there early, parking seems limited. There's also a market on 10th Ave very close by the trailhead if needed.

Tough but awesome hike. Took 5 hours. At the top of the third waterfall took a right and hiked up to the peak. Then came back down to the third waterfall there is another trail to the left that loops around back down to the river bed. I recommend this unless you like down and back trails.

4 stars bc even though I almost died on this hike (not joking, slipped and fell a couples inches shy of a cliff edge) it wasn't a "bad" hike. Took us 7 hours as a large group - sketch parts are climbing the waterfalls, the lack of ropes in certain places, slippery boulders (go on a dry day), and the sheer drop on either side when you're on the backside of the crater, where the path is only a few feet wide. I blocked a lot of the hike out of my memory from the trauma tbh but it was still a solid hike. Just don't get complacent on it and you should be fine.

Beautiful views, however I would only recommend this to experienced hikers. This is not a hike you should do in flip flops or if you are uncomfortable with heights. The trail is quite windy and involved walking along a very steep cliff face. The view at the puka is beautiful, but word to the wise, make sure at the end you go over the rocks and climb down to the puka if you can, going behind the rocks proved to be very slick and narrow.

Made the trek this morning at sunrise to the arch, and the view was gorgeous! Definitely worth the wake up call. Climbed atop the arch for a better view, and the climb up the arch is a little sketchy. It looks like there may have been a rope at one point, but no more. Didn't attempt the trek to the top of the crater today, but would like to attempt it eventually.
