We kept hearing this phrase from people out on the trails, it’s so worth it. Mildly tough trek, with stairs on the short path, but the end result is worth the struggle for the amateur hiker. Glorious views. Amazing campground. Clean bathrooms. A lot of the sites seemed pretty close but we got Campsite #9 and that by far is the best spot. You’re up and away from everyone. We didn’t hear much at night aside from occasional traffic and the the beautiful sound of the falls all around. Be bear aware and put your stuff up at night.
