  • Beautiful. Don't letthe drive out discourage you, and the hike down to the falls isn't too bad. A nice place to relax. Looks like they are working on improvements to the area. Be careful people have been hurt and died. There was a memorial on site less than 2 months old despite the signs everywhere people still seem to get hurt or die. Not as trashy as some have said, still no trash cans.
  • We had a great time here. The falls are secluded and there's a boulder at the base of the falls to relax and enjoy the scenery. We swam in the pool with my sons Labrador and really enjoyed this waterfall and natural pool.
  • We thoroughly enjoyed it here. Walk down the trail to the bottom and hang out on the rocks. It's popular and easy to get to so you may have to scrounge for parking.
  • Easy short trail, pretty waterfall, overall nice hike, and you can keep going and make it longer.
  • Beautiful and clean. There were families everywhere and the walk down wasn't bad at all. Worth your time for sure.
