This was a great adventure. The hike in was definately exhausting since the temp was 110 in the afternoon. Took about 6 hours to hike in with a group of 9 (including kids) and fully loaded backpacks. The waterfalls were so much more beautiful than I expected; really breathtaking. We found a great camp right next to the stream and fairly close to the fern spring. The water was bracingly cold but just so blue-green and beautiful. We slept on the ground out under the stars and ate dried fruit and granola for three days but it was all worth it. We saw a wild horse with her foal, a turantula, a grey coyote, a velvet ant, a 6 foot gopher snake and a dead rattlesnake, along with stray dogs which we friendly and liked to sleep in our camp. The hike out went much better since we left before sun up and walked out without the oppresing heat, although the switchbacks seemed endless. So much fun. A true test of physical and mental strength. Everyone in our group agreed it was a great adventure.
