We hike quite a bit and I would not consider this an easy trail. The trail includes narrow slippery spots going down the hill and walking over slippery rocks up the creek, exhausting and challenging for children. The falls is beautiful, but was more of a party scene than a family scene, lots of college students drinking, no joke. We will not be going back. We prefer the true nature hike that's less inhabited, not an overcrowded swimming hole.

nice moderate trail. Bring or wear shoes you don't mind getting wet in the walk to the waterfall!

This is my sons favorite hike. Make sure to trek down the river to the falls. Watch out for snakes by the water.
