Reach this trail by starting out for Bajo Mono. Follow the signs for the waterfalls up towards Sendero Quetzales. Follow the trail map sign and Waterfalls wooden sign for the Sendero. There will be a "Waterfalls 1.2km -->" old wooden sign at the trailhead and an obvious trail entrance. Go past a local's house (it's for sale and he will come out and ask you if you want to buy) and cross the suspension bridge over the stream. Start hiking UP. After the stone/wooden steps, you reach a small family compound run by an indigenous family. Pay $5 at the trail booth and continue through their small strawberry farm up to the trees. Start climbing the trail for the waterfalls. There are three to see- the first is about 10 minutes up and has a very lovely viewing area at about mid-height of the cascades with benches for enjoying the view. It is tall and the rocks glisten where the water bounds down them- beautiful to see. The second waterfall is another 15 minutes up and comes to the bottom of the falls, where you can walk around the edge of the pool to a small muddy cave. The hike is very much an uphill climb, with steps sometimes 2-3 feet tall. It will take time and you're high up, so enjoy the scenery and go slow- the falls are worth the climb! We almost did only the second waterfall as the rain was coming in, but ran down to the first waterfall and were very grateful we did. Very romantic.
