My first hike ever! It was a very enjoyable hike not to difficult and some great scenery. Trail head was easy to find and as long as you stayed on the most worn trail rout finding didn't pose a problem. We went 3 days after it rained and to our disappointment the falls were not running. Mesquites and gnats were bad in the morning. If you are going early in the morning i suggest some repellent. Great Hike. Especially for beginners.
