  • Great quick walk to both upper or lower falls. Drive is bumpy and potholes are a pain but after you get there very nice! If you want to hike or bike more many options. 
  • This is a splendid falls that you can easily hike to. From the falls the trail leads to other falls and other trails. The hikes are easy and you will have a great day. 
  • Short and fairly easy hike with breathtaking views of the falls. It was pretty populated when I was there, but I still got to sit quietly and enjoy the sounds and sights.

  • Such a fun day with my buddies... You can just for a little bit or a lot. from my car to the fall it was about a 10-minute hike but we went a lot farther than that I'd recommend you do too.
  • Gorgeous falls! And super easy to get a good view, don't have to go very far at all to see the falls, in case you didn't want to hike, which is also an option.
  • A great place to visit. A bit crowded at the Falls but the hike to the upper falls is GREAT. Not a lot of elevation and would rate the hike easy as the trails are well maintained and traveled, many spots to stop and let the dog or kids splash in the creek water AND beautiful waterfalls. Very pet and kid friendly!!!
  • Beautiful falls and hike. Stay away from the outhouses though, they're absolutely rancid.
  • Although you have to drive down a gravel road, there is a parking area at the end of the road. You can see the falls from the parking too. Beautiful falls for such an easy hike.
