Had a great time hiking through the river! One of my favorite things I’ve done with RY! Scrambling through the river, up and down the trails, ending at the waterfall was awesome!
This was an epic hike! Prepare to scramble rocks, walk through rivers, and climb through the rain forest. The pay out at the end is an amazing waterfall. Bring a bathing suit so you can swim! Perfect if you want to get out of the city and into nature.
