Natural trail surfaces are varied and include water crossings, boulders and other obstacles. These are not improved trails.
Trails and rocks at the waterfall and gorge area are often slippery, so wear sturdy shoes and remember safety first. Keep in mind the weather when planning your visit. Sudden heavy rainfalls can result in flash floods and streams can become very dangerous.
