  • 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.
  • What a beauty she is. I'd recommend the morning as this allows you to watch the mist roll back from the falls. Seeing the water isn't always a guarantee as nature does revs to do as she pleases. Truly a treasure.
  • No easy access if it's raining... provide a 4 x 4 but great view without walking
