On Route 30, watch for the sign that says Mine Kill Falls Overlook. Pull in and park, and take the 1 minute walk to the overlook! Breath-taking view of a natural wonder!

It was a 20-30 minute walk to the top of the falls from the parking lot near the pools. There is another entrance that has a shorter trail. Trail was very well marked.
