We will stay on the improved trail (wide gravel walking path) for this hike, but will venture into the rock beds to view the additional waterfalls. There are some places where your feet can get wet and you will have to step on/over rocks. If you do not want to partake in this, there is the option to wait on the main trail as we will be returning to the same location. There are hills along this trail, but can also be taken at a relaxed pace. 

PLEASE bring shoes with a good non-slip grip and do not wear broken or torn shoes. 

As all us locals know, it will be HOT so be prepared and bring plenty of water. It is also a good idea to pack a towel a small towel as there are water holes to cool off in.
