Best to stay in the forested area as it's less bush bashing on the way up through the trees. Canyon entry: - Enter the canyon just above the conjunction of streams just above the visible waterfalls. Canyon descent: - Steep canyon which is mostly low flow and shallow pools. Very scenic and beautiful.
