  • Good for photographers, a little bit far from the road and not easy for cell phone to have a good picture
  • Beautiful and the Yankees can't get to it! No one can come invade on your privacy.
  • Very close to the road. There is bridge and parking over the bridge. Quick stop and photo shoot. Falls itself very small but looks great to view from Road. Didnt make the trail that lead to the falls
  • Nice place. Hidden gem. Highly recommend for the photographers
  • Gorgeous waterfall! We had water shoes, climbed down and hiked through the water to see it. Spent a while just enjoying the peaceful sounds, got engaged down there too! 💛
