Comments: I arrived for the first tour of the day at 10:00 AM. No one else showed up so I had a personal tour. The changes in vegetation from the top of the ridge to the bottom is incredible. The hike is short with a few steep spots, but they've done a good job of adding steps and hand holds where necessary. A couple of bats were resting in the cave near the falls.
