We took the South Orange Ave, parking lot, the second one, there is a massive amount of reconstruction of the avenue and they are upgrading the area, the hike is somewhat moderate, it can get challenging at some points but, over all, its a pretty easy hike, nice waterfalls and lots of land of land to cover.

Took us a while to actually find the parking lot for the trail. It took us about 2hrs because we had my 3 year old and my 7 month old who was in the baby straps. It got difficult getting up those hills with the baby strapped onto me and it was very humid outside. we saw 2 snakes on our way there. we also got lost trying to find or way out because there are so many entrances that lead to different places. It was a great work out!
