  • Beautiful place, the drive is rough but it’s part of the adventure. Once you’re there you will know it, you will feel the temperature change. Short walk to the platform and the view is amazing.
  • Great views. There's an attendant who lives at the top with his family. Chat with him. Sign the log book and he'll show you around. He's super nice. There's LOTS to see from up there. Bring a camera AND bug spray.
  • The journey to the falls is just as exciting as the falls themselves! The facility is right on the point of cliff overlooking a deep valley. You can hear the falls as you pull into the park ... walking down the steps to the viewing platform is a nice experience. The only issue you might have is fog. It is very unpredictable here ... it could be clear one minute and then totally obscure the falls the next ... good luck!
  • Beautiful falls, and a solid seeming viewing platform, however it can be difficult to get an actual good look at the falls depending on the weather. From the platform itself you cannot see all of the falls and cannot see where they land in the valley, however with a go pro on a drone it could be a different experience. On a foggy day you will experience very little other than the sound of the falls.
  • Very long and difficult drive to get to the falls. Once you were there the trail that goes to the falls has been closed. Very disappointing.
