Great short walk to a beautiful place. Great swim. Surprising that it wasn't too full of people. Take shoes that don;t slip.

Amazing hike though woods and streams with multiple trails and challenging aspects all over! The more you put in to this hike the more you will get out of it! Bring corn chips to the main falls for some cool fish viewing

Worth seeing, but be prepared. The hike is long and you must have good shoes. Take a camera and be prepared to get wet!
