Description

This is a very challenging, slippery slot canyon trail which requires some rock scrambling and multiple creek crossings. Nearly every person in our group slipped and fell when we attempted it. Despite the challenge to get there, the falls are impressive and worth the effort to see. Keep in mind that this route becomes exponentially more dangerous when rain occurs.

Be careful, very slick. Take your time and make calculated moves. I would say a good reward for the trek.
