Everyone in the family can walk to the waterfall, but the steps after that are definitely a challenge to little or frail legs. Once at the top you can head to other beautiful areas, but you can reach them by car too! There's a bridge...More

Depends on personal hiking condition. We made it in 70 minutes to the top. But we were of good speed. I would say up to 100 minutes is ok.
