We took our family of 5 and had a great time. The trail is a little over 2 miles each way. The walk is not flat, parts of it are at an incline. The steepest is in the first part. We saw people of all ages making it all the way to the falls. If you go, wear comfortable shoes and be prepared it's somewhat uneven. I wore water socks and that worked fine for me; they're light and are fine walking thru mud and water. Restrooms are in parking lot only. It was encouraging to see grandparents, young and small children taking the walk. The waterfalls at the end, wow what a sight to see. Very much worth the walk. Be patient with yourself and your group. You'll get there, the journey and the destination are absolutely beautiful and well worth it. I carried my 8 year old daughter on my back part of the way. It was worth it. We found the walk back easier and faster. The only fee is for parking; $10.00, this gives you access to bathrooms and parking space.
