Beautiful place to go, not too strenuous for disabled or elderly, but a lot of steps . It also has a spot to take a dip in the water. The waterfall is not always there so you may not see that. If you're looking for...More

Beautiful valley in the jungle with dramatic peaks. The park has walking paths (not really what I would call a hike) and you can soak your feet or whole self in the stream--very refreshing on a hot day!

This is not a hike unless climbing stairs counts. The pathway is paved/concrete and has handrails where ever the pitch is steep or there are stairs. The walk is 0.6miles and is not designed for strollers or wheelchairs...people with crutches would likely struggle with the...More
