Comments:

I hiked this place twice. once from the lower trail below the twin falls and once from the upper track above sculptural falls and both times I ended up at twin falls which is the best feature of the place. great for swimming.

Most of the time the main track gets covered by water  so it is easy for you to get off track and get lost. I suggest you take a map of the place with you before you go and keep your eyes open for the tracks that might have gone under water. especially if you start from the lower track up towards the twin falls you are sure to get lost if you do't have a map with you. remember you must always walk along the river. if you are getting away from the river you are in the wrong track.
