Lots of snow makes for a great walk. Beautiful in the winter. A covered bridge and lots of outdoor scenery makes for a peaceful walk.

The place had closed for the season the day before we got there ... all we could do was admire the leaves and the pool by the entrance. Looked good.

I brought my young daughter (6) here and it was just amazing! The rush of the water splashing right within reach, but safely distant, the towering cliff faces rising 30 feet above you, and the amazing climb up and up and up was tremendous. My...More
