Even after a large amount of blooms were gone and leave came down there was still so much beauty to see. Not crowded. Very romantic and a lot of ground to cover. Worth the money and another visit.

If I recall correctly, the big treehouse with the nets is not entirely accessible. In general, though, it shouldn't be too much of a hassle.
