This is a must see. The trails are not easy but not hard and its just a gorgeous lush jungle paradise. The bridges and walkways feel like you're walking back in time. Everything is natural and beautiful. You'll want to spend days in here

A beautiful end to a challenging walk to get there. This is a true RainForest experience ! Very happy we stopped to take a look. The water is crystal clear and the animal sounds around you are amazing.

This is a really nice waterfall in a very small park. There is a man made pool down a trail that takes a bit to locate. It was also very inexpensive to enter. Great place for a small picnic lunch.

It is up to the workers that are on staff to make this available. If you feel inclined to give them a tip, this would help the situation and make it possible to bring in your dog.
