  • This one was a nice surprise on our road tip. I had missed it on the maps, but we saw the sign from the road and went there. The falls are visible from the parking, but you can carefully walk down to the water and enjoy the nice sight.

  • Simple, quiet, and gorgeous. There's some great picnic table spots. Be sure to catch the plaque nearby commemorating a wonderful couple.
