This is a VERY strenous hike-we are avid bike riders/time trialists and found this hike tough. It was worth it-especially once you get to the falls. This seems like a no-brainer-but be sure to take water and food with you. We saw many people doing this hike and had nothing with them-crazy! This took us almost 6 hours and we stopped only to take pictures and to snack, so plan a full day of hiking. Beautiful scenery, the campground staff are very knowlegable and helpful. We will do this one again when we are in the area!
If you like feeling like you are in the belly of the Redwoods, this is a great place. It is very quiet, we didn't see any wildlife and came across a few people. I prefer hikes with breath taking views, this does not offer that. However, we only hiked in half way and returned, don't know what it was like beyond that.
