Stopped off to have a break. Lovely spot, with benches and tables. A short walk (with steps) to see a lovely waterfall from a wooden footbridge. Didn’t venture further but the path leads on.

This waterfall is very accessible. The rustic roadside sign says "rest stop" in big letters, and "small's falls" in small print below. There is no advance warning of the rest stop, but the parking lot has two entrances, so you can catch the second one...More

A favorite swimming hole for young and old alike. Deep pools offer a nice spot to swim or if you’re brave enough jump. If you want a picture of the falls go at an off peak time because people go here to swim/jump.

A must for all lovers of waterfalls. Not that big but definitely worth a stop. Families were in the cool water pool and having a great experience. Easy access.

Located a short walk from the parking, this is a beautiful series of waterfalls and pools. It was full of folks swimming on a hot summer's day.

Beautiful hike into Smalls Falls. Lovely stairs lead you down to a foot bridge where you can view the falls. Then a short hike up to the top is very worthwhile.
