I love water falls and this rates as one of my favorites. The area is beautiful and there is about a mile hike to see it, well worth it. You can see it from a wooden deck overlooking the falls or hike down and navigate...More

We had a wonderful hike to the falls. I had a trekking pole that helped going down and up. It was quite, beautiful, and scenic. The viewing platform was a nice touch. A great photo opportunity.

Beautiful falls. 1/2 mile hike to the lower falls. Lots of hills! Well worth the hike. We did it with 4 young children and grandparents.

Our family spent a late afternoon trekking to the falls and back. Beautiful trail, somewhat steep; going to the falls was easy, coming back was a little tough since it's all uphill! Bring some water for sure. You can also rest along the way on...More

This is one of the waterfalls that you can actually get in the water! The steps lead you to the base of the falls and it's great to dip your toes in. The map at the beginning is really confusing but we were lucky to...More

Easy hike for the whole family. Short hike to the falls. Limited parking. We enjoyed an early morning hike to these falls and took several beautiful pictures.
