  • Machine Falls was gorgeous and clear water makes it nice for wading in. Only downside was people leaving shoes and socks when they left. Only saw one snake on the trail back! The trail is only tough when you are close to the falls. Totally worth it.
  • Two big toe's, not enough payday's for the bear's. Nice noose's & tall tree's' dog gone friendly' especially since now day's people think they have to keep them attached to their side's everywhere they go like a set of car key's. Overall' kept falling asleep or nodding out on the portable crapper' to much spice & rice I guess. And squirting fish' never seen them fing things before..!!
  • Machine Falls is amazing! Pretty easy hike with one steep spot.
  • Great place to go on an adventure that will lead you across bridges, creeks, falls and many other wonders.
  • Absolutely beautiful natural area. Be sure to see Machine Falls, especially after it rains!
