  • You can see these falls after a shorter walk than it would take to get from one of most malls to the other. The path is easy and open. They have benches to sit on. The day we went there was lots of tuber traffic.
  • Awesome trails. Tons of people tubing. 3 water falls within about 3 miles. Awesome day trip!
  • Love, Love, Love. Easy wide smooth short hiking trail to gorgeous Falls. Be sure to pack your tubes, towels and a change of clothes. Tubing in the natural streams looked so fun and easy for everyone.
  • Great day trip. My 5 and 3 year olds were loving the hike to the falls.
  • Wonderful, easy, wide trail running alongside a creek. Nice waterfall, beautiful large rhododendrons that bloom in spring. They do not allow dogs on the trail, but we didn't know that until we got there. (We brought our dog along anyways.)
