This is one of my favorite places. We've hiked the whole trail a few times, and my recommendation is to hike with friends, taking two cars and parking one at the north entrance and one at the south, so you can eliminate the rim trail, which travels through the forest between the two ends of the falls but is not very scenic and runs parallel to the road. If you begin at the north parking lot, be sure to turn left first so you can see the upper north falls, then go back and continue on the trail through the remaining nine falls. Starting at the north end will bring you to the south end last, which is the most strenuous climb but puts you in the actual park where you can end your hike with a picnic and swimming, but lots of people. If you start at the south end, the final ascent is not as long or difficult, and then you can finish at the upper north falls where there is also a swimming hole and a lot less people, but it is not as conducive to picnicking as there are no tables, restrooms, grills, concession stands, beach area, etc. I would rate this hike as easy to moderate, as most of the trail is along the canyon floor and is really more of a walk than a hike. With stopping at every fall to take pictures the hike from north to south takes about two hours.

Well maintained trails. Could spend all day up here depending on the rout you take. There are smaller loops within and lots of signs so it's pretty hard to get lost. Bring snacks and lots of water. There are some stairs and hills but they aren't bad even for someone out of shape.

Trail is well maintained and is pretty easy. There are a couple steep hills and some stairs as well. Because it is in a small canyon, it can be cooler on the trail so wearing layers is recommended. It also can be fairly long depending on your route so make sure to bring plenty of water and some snacks.
