This hike is everything everyone said it would be. It's insanely beautiful and the parts of it we did were fairly easy/flat. As everyone else is saying you should definitely rent gear - waterproof pants, boots, neoprene socks and a walking stick (more like a...More

This spot is really famous at this NP then be ready because at some moments it could seem like wandering of the nations. On the other side it is neat experience.

Definitely super crowded but because its so pretty. There are a lot of rocks and places with stronger currents. Make sure to check the weather for recent rain in the area for flash floods.

We were there mid September and did enjoy the hike in the water. Plenty of tourists did the same. After approx. 2 hr towards to North (upstream) the crowd is getting thinner. Lovely wildlife to see.

Plan to get wet even if you rent the gear. It will not keep your feet dry!! But the neoprene socks will keep your feet warm. In retrospect, I wish I'd have bought my own "wet" socks and used a grippy pair of shoes I...More
