This hike crosses many streams and a waterfall. Beautiful terrain with lush greenery all around. Amazing natural pools to swim in along the way, and breathtaking views of the Three Rondavels.

The walk was an easy hike through the forest and was enjoyable... similar to walking through the Northern Ontario Canadian bush (sans the mosquitos and black flies :)) Lovely little waterfall at the end of it. Comfortable, nice bit of exercise.
