This hike is approximately 3.5 miles and comfortable shoes or hiking boots are recommended. Enjoy the falls while nibbling on light refreshments provided by the tour.

I don’t know if the park allows swimming but the tour is not at a location long enough to let people swim. At the last and largest waterfall there is a rest and you could have a very quick get wet.

I have to admit I don’t remember the names of the waterfalls. Call Keith he always responds by days end. We stayed to view, take pictures, enjoy the surroundings for 10-15 minutes and moved on. Timing was great for our tour.
