This easy hike to a beautiful waterfall is well worth your time. Many families are on this "hike". It is paved to the top, and suitable for strollers or motorized wheelchairs. It is a lovely waterfall.

The trail starts at a paved parking lot with picnic tables nearby. The hike up to the falls is paved, and is less than a mile. It is an easy hike with a very picturesque spot at the end. It was definitely worth it
