  • This is a MUST do hike for all ages. We had ages 4-70 and everyone loved this. Don’t stop at the falls... go on to to lake.  more »

  • Adams Falls is a beautiful waterfall that is reached by what the NPS says is an easy, flat 0.3 mile (0.5k) trail but this must be a misprint as the trail climbs steadily over a rocky trail making it.....  more »
  • This was a great family - friendly hike. Maybe a little crowded but totally worth it. Looks like there are several other longer trails to try next time!
  • Be sure to hike beyond the first viewing of the falls. The wildflowers growing around the falls are gorgeous, and the falls are powerful and amazing!
  • Pretty great hike. I usually only go to the falls or the flat area above the falls. It's a rocky hike that poses challenges to older folks and kids. The falls are amazing, but cause parents anxiety due to unsafe areas.
  • Easy hike out to the falls, impressive rush of water through the tight gourge. Have to wonder how many phones are at the bottom of the falls.
  • Very beautiful place to visit. Very short (but uphill) walk to get to. Definitely consider to keep walking the east inlet trail a ways for some spectacular views
