Gorgeous Falls, well maintained trails and facilities, close to town. This is one of the oldest State Parks in the county (we have several, now) and it has a well deserved fine reputation. more »

Absolutely beautiful waterfall. I would rate it a medium to hard hike. You must walk through the creek to reach the swimming gorge but it's worth the hike. Don't forget your water shoes. They are a mu... more »

Gorgeous landmark! A few suggestions.... wear water shoes, tennis shoes you don't mind getting wet or all terrain sandals. It is a mile to the falls when using the shortcut. It is a little hard to navigate if you haven't done your research. About .25 miles is downhill to the stream where you'll finish off the .75 miles walk through a river area. Rocks are super slippery. Although it is a tough walk we did it with 6 adults and 7 children and we were very ill-prepared. Take bottled water in a backpack and nothing else. You'll appreciate the freezing cold swimming hole at the end of the hike but keep in mind you'll have to hike back.

Absolutely amazing. Please note that your shows will get wet. So come prepared. Don't even think of walking barefoot. Rocks can cut your foot. Also no washroom near falls. Only wash room is near parking and from there falls is about 30 - 45 min walk depending upon your speed and how many places you stop to take pics

Beautiful hike. My friends and I had a lot of fun hiking and swimming there. We saw some hikers with very young children, infants in carriers. Considering parts of the trail were very slippery and there were loose and jagged rocks I highly recommend not bringing infants or young children. There was a pretty strong current because of recent rain in the area. It's a state park. It's swim at your own risk as most natural places are. Read the signs, exercise caution and stay safe.

It would be a beautiful place to spend some time however it gets really crowded in the warm months. If that doesn't bother you and you just want to spend some time splashing around then it's good. If you want to get away from people and just check out the awesomeness of nature you might find another fall to go to

This is a great park with some good hikes that take you through water, forest, and rocks. You end up at the falls where you can swim and otherwise enjoy the it all. We were there over Memorial day. It was really busy with hundreds of people but a lot of fun nonetheless.
