We came for the Butterfly Gardens and the hike to the waterfall. The gardens is a very small (and let me emphasize small) area with only a few butterflies. It is not worth it. We did see 3 blue butterflies, but I saw more butterflies on our nature hike. The waterfall hike is nice. If you are wanting to go on the waterfall hike, park by the Montezuma bridge and go to the waterfalls that way; as you do not need to pay to go to the waterfalls. As for the butterfly gardens, there are many better places to go. I did read some good reviews on the gardens, but having been there, I have no idea what anyone was talking about. After our hike, my husband and I thought it would be better if we didn't tell anyone that we had been here, as we found it embarrassing.
