Second Group... (btw we are using one waitlist for both groups). And to help with the long waistlist, Tom and Lucy have posted a hike for Sunday so that is another alternative if both of these are full)
Our plan to get to the falls is to take the main trail in from the the eastern trailhead...this is the one that most everyone uses. But by using a car shuttle, we will hike out on the 1/2 mile shortcut trail rather than having to trek all the way back.
But we will spend at least a couple of hours at the falls, just relaxing and swimming, etc.... maybe some games as well. You can actually wade all the way from the little beach to the waterfall without having to really "swim". Or if you want to just relax on the beach, you are welcome to. But that water will feel SO good on a hot summers day and most will choose to get in and enjoy it.
The total hiking distance will be about 4 miles..but the terrain makes it a D3 for sure with a couple of rocky areas where you need to be extra careful. Also the shortcut trail out is a bit steep for the first 1/4 mile.
