  • Lovely falls that was right on the rim drive. Needed to walk a bit to see the whole thing. Rocky and steep. People were walking where they shouldn’t which was disturbing.  more »
  • A wonderful fall to witness. Large viewing area and big enough for an RV or similar. You can great pictures!  more »
  • This stop is right along the Rim Drive so it makes sense to park for a few minutes to enjoy the sight and sound of the cascading falls.  more »

  • You go to Crater Lake to see the lake not these falls. Off in a wilderness all by themselves they would be a sight, but caught in the middle of this park, they are ho hum. If your walking, biking, skiing, or driving by, take the time to stop for a few minutes and consider where in the heck does that water come from? Then you will take in the marvel of what is happening and enjoy the moment. This is not worth the effort to go out of your way for, but if you are at this point on the rim, you are probably in for the full tour and you should take 10 minutes to enjoy. If you are driving by, please slow down as many people mingle on the edge of the road here.
  • This is the prettiest falls in the NP. Stop the frenetic touring and breathe the mist charged air from the cascading mountain stream. All is better.
  • It's beautiful, but not safe. While there is no specific trail, many people are climbing along the falls to get better view. I went there and nearly fell down the hill. It's a need to tell visitors not to climb the hill; or build a trail with stairs to ensure safety.
  • A lot of people scrambling along the river and falls. Not the greatest waterfall to view.
  • Vidal disappoints if you go out of your way to visit it - don't. If you are on Rim Dr then it is a nice road side stop to view the falls.
