First of all, Bow Lake at the start of this trail is just beautiful. And, its nice to have the snack shop at Num-Ti-Jah Lodge available for snacks and drinks after the hike. Like others have said, drive past the lodge to park close to the trail head. The trail isn't too difficult, but part of it has been washed-out. You will have to get creative and wade through the water, or preferably, climb through the trees for a bit. This is also a very rocky trail, so be prepared with good hiking boots. Finally, wear bug spray! The trail ends at the falls and it is spectacular. We ate lunch at the end and there were only five other people in sight. On the way back we passed two large groups of backpackers, but they were likely headed to the hut. This was an amazing way to get away from crowds and just enjoy the beauty of the area in peace.
