  • It was very nice and nature exploring trip with lots of fun of natural water fall and walking trail! A really fun filled walk to well maintained wooden walk ways and water fall scene tic view:)  more »
  • So much rain and melting snow provided fabulous falls that were running hard today. The sun was shining and we did the yellow with the blue route. A lot of step climbing so be prepared. We went a few ...  more »
  • Relaxing, peaceful, beautiful place. If I had more time I would've hiked all of the trails- or at least tried lol. I did the green and some of the yellow trail. It was (extremely) quiet refreshing for someone like me who lives in the city (Philadelphia) and doesn't see waterfalls often.
  • Very nice place to visit. No extra fee for parking. Trails and falls are very nice. Once you move away from the main fails it gets less crowded on the trails. Some of the railings are loose on the cliffs so don't lean on them. This place makes a very good regional day trip.
  • Holy stairs! There are A LOT of stairs here. They are winding, narrow, wet and oddly shaped - so be careful! The falls are beautiful and worth the walk. I recommend walking out past the main attraction for the moderate hike (a lot of uphill). Great place to take dogs and children. Parking was easy. I was surprised at the steep admission ticket prices, but understand this is to help maintain the walkways around the falls.
  • I agree... don't listen to the comments. A great place to walk with very well maintained paths. Yes... you can find rocks on the red trail... it's a mountain :). Level: my 5year old was able to complete all the trails in three hours. Really a lot of steps, it was a right choice to not bring my 3yo with us. Absolutely no crowd yesterday, Friday.
  • Drove 2.5 hours from Philly last Saturday on a whim and was absolutely worth the trip. Spent bout 3 hours walking the trails around the falls but didnt even get to check out the other attractions there. Could be very easy to spend an entire day there. A ton of walking up steep steps so wear comfortable shoes and be wary of bring children that cannot walk on their own. Saw a lot of parents practically dragging their toddlers along the trails about a mile in. Incredibly beautiful and fresh. Greats date spot. Would go again.
