Getting lost can be fun. There are trails to follow and you can usually find someone to point you in the right direction, but once you go into the forest it can be a fun adventure. You have to be up for some climbing, crossing...More

The trail to see the water fall is very long and rough. When we went it was muddy and slick. The pool under the waterfall was blocked off so you really couldn't get very close. Really wasn't worth the trouble it took to clean everyone...More

Oh my goodness, so not worth it! We were muddy and wet half way through it, not to mention the walk was very slippery with lots of muddy puddles. Our award at the end was a tiny waterfall?!
