From the entrance, you will walk about 20mins to Sendang Gile Waterfall, the smaller waterfall. From there, you can trek for about 45mins to the next bigger one, Tiu Kelap Waterfall which is the biggest in Lombok, but I would only suggest the physically fit ones to take this trek as you have to walk through jungles and the road is pretty steep and slippery.
