We did this hike during our first week in Palm Springs. There is an admission per person to get into the area from the Visitor's Center. We noticed that this hike is quite popular with senior citizens, some of which were having difficultly with parts of the trail. Wear sturdy althletic shoes with a good grip. We also used our hiking poles. The falls is very scenic. You loop back on an adjacent trails so that is kind of nice as well.
