This is said to be a "a moderately vigorous" hike, which I agree with. That said, there were hikers age 7- 70 on the trail with us, though the older folks appeared to be very active and in great shape. The first half of the trail is all downhill, then you turn around and cone back the way you came, which of course means, uphill all the way home! I would not do this hike if it has recently rained - we had 2 dry days after the most recent rain and the trail was dry almost everywhere - just a couple of muddy spots left, but I can imagine a recent rain would leave this trail in rough shape and make for extremely slow-going. There are signs posted regarding staying on the trail and away from waterfalls. I was told by a couple of people that people have slipped on the rocks and went down the falls and died. After seeing the falls, j can definitely see how this could happen - just stay on the trail and you'll be fine! I would probably not take a child under 7 or 8 for that reason though! Beautiful rhodedendron line the trail in many places - looking forward to doing this hike again when they are in bloom and also in the fall.
