This was FANTASTIC! our guide Erickson was 10/10 I would do this again You get 2 snacks, 2 waters a dang good sandwich. I will say we did not wear hiking shoes, we wore water sandals with straps and my son had crocs. Our guide was barefoot. You will cross water so choice is yours on if u want boots or not. Def want traction tho. This is 100% worth it. Would do again. Beautiful scenery makes for beautiful pictures. Waterfall was spectacular and was refreshing to take a dip after a warm walk. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and I left with a few fun stories as well.
