An awesome hike! You have to cross the river (~ knee high when we went) to get to the trail. The front loop up to the gulf is unbelievable. If you are NOT afraid of heights there are points where you can leave the trail and climb up to the cliff's edge and look down at the river and at times the waterfalls; of course at your own risk. The actual trail is at times difficult to follow and is fairly difficult to climb. There are many small boulders and rock formations that you have to climb up and over that can get technical, especially if it starts to rain and the rocks get wet( like what happened to us). It took us a little less than 4 hours to hike the entire loop, even with all the stopping and sight-seeing we did. It's an unbelievable hike that challenges you but is also one of the best hikes I've been on because you can take your time if you want and enjoy the day. I absolutely loved the hike and the challenge and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great day hike.
