  • This is a nice and serene road trip stop, slightly off-the-beaten-path of Route 66 travel. There are some very interesting rock formations, with plenty of vantage points for photography. Parking is ru...  more »
  • We saw this on the net and thought we should check it out, what a great spot to hike, fish or just sit in the shade and watch the water go by, beautiful area, we saw people fishing and kayaking, it is...  more »
  • Some local friends took us here to see this place. The water was rather swift out in midstream but there were pockets where pools were located so that you could get into the water. People were fishing...  more »

  • Grand Falls is a beautiful small water fall! It is relaxing. You can still go and seat on the top area if you are disabled. You will not be able to go down to the water area if disable. Even so, just being there and observe it is a great experience. This is a great place to visit if you are in the area.
  • Absolutely stunning example of what our planet has to offer! It was back down a scary one laned bridge, but Google maps took us right there! Not much parking since it isn't commercialized, but everyone made polite choices so others could park too. We were there in the evening and it wasn't very warm, so there weren't many other people there...not sure how busy it gets when the weather is nice.
  • Very pretty. Park on the road if you want to get out easier though. The parking area is tiny.
  • Look for tadpoles in the small pools, jump off the waterfall, or wade in the shallow runoff. Bring old shoes that you can get wet for water and land and enjoy the scenery. Warning: toddlers, elderly, or injured poeple will have alot of trouble getting around this place, it is very rocky and the current is too strong for little ones, parental supervision is strongly suggested.
  • So beautiful! Me and the kids always enjoy a nice day together there
