Great hike. If you stop at the Visitor Center and ask at the desk they have a flyer describing the route. On memorial day the water was cool and relatively clear. Great slot canyon trip with steep close walls and cave-like under cuts. Saw no one on the trail until we were almost to the end. We started out in light weight hikers and then changed into keens once we could no longer avoid going in the water. It is a ways between falls 2 and 3 and 3 was the trickiest to get down. Glad we had seen the description in the Last issue of Backpacker or we wouldn't have known to ask about it and it is not mentioned in their hiking flyer. I wouldn't consider it if thunder storms are threatening.
