***This is a VERY, VERY strenuous excursion.*** We hiked to the Middleham Falls. If you are not in really good physical condition, please do not try this hike. I'm not being mean. I'm trying to keep you from injuring yourself in an area where there is NO close emergency services. The climbing is arduous and slippery, being that you're in the middle of a rain forest. My husband and I do a lengthy cardiovascular workout 4-5x a week and this was extremely challenging for us. There were members of our group that could not complete the 4 mile roundtrip hike to the falls and back. At times we were climbing rocks, traversing large streams and at all times we were walking on small logs, requiring the muscles in the pads and arches of our feet to grip constantly. The falls were absolutely gorgeous and it was a relief to finally arrive because it allowed us to finally take our eyes off the path we were climbing and the feet of the person climbing ahead of us. We would totally recommend this excursion if, and only if, you are in very good health and physical condition. Be sure to bring water. It is not provided during the hike.
