This is not a difficult hike at all. It’s only about a two mile round trip loop, with maybe 200 feet of elevation change (mostly just very tall steps). However, if you start this hike in the afternoon, it will be extremely hot; signs in the visitor center actually REQUIRE every person taking the hike to carry at least one bottle of water. It may just be a way for them to sell more bottles of water, but it’s also a good idea. A sun hat and a trekking pole are helpful as well.
At the end of the hike, you are rewarded with a pretty little waterfall dropping into a pool of water. Every new arrival has to take his or her shoes off and go wading- the water is icy cold, and feels wonderful after the hike. Definitely worth it.
Be sure to pick up a coupon at the Visitor Center for $2.50 off of the normal $12.50 entrance fee. Also, bring a towel so you can dry your feet, or wear water sandals.
