Great hike today. Rating should be Moderate.

It was not the hardest hike I've ever done but will be one of my favorites. The falls were beautiful. The hike to the falls was easy to follow and there were many little trails around the falls to explore the falls in more detail. Once we crossed over to continue on the trail it became difficult to follow. We did a lot of bushwacking and stayed close to the trail only because of the alltrails map. With this being said, it was a lot of fun. We were determined to find a place to cross back once we saw the trail continuing on the other side. We did have to get creative and had to go below the trail to find a place to cross. We walked, climbed,scooted across a couple fallen logs with the water rushing under our feet and then jump across another rock. We thought it was a blast but might would be too difficult for someone older or without good balance. Once we reached the other side the trail was easy to follow the rest of the way with a gradual incline. This will definitely become a regular hike and possible camping spot.

I have hiked this trail years ago I did not find it easy . ( need to change the rating to hard ) It is nice at the bottom but that walk back out is hard !

Great awesome hike with challenging last 1/4 mile. Unreal stunning jaw dropping views are your payoff!
