If you are driving by, you have to stop. Not much parking, but get out and get some beautiful pictures. Watch your speed!

You don't even have to be a hiker to see these falls. They are right off the road. There is a parking lot but it is small and there is a VERY small picnic area. A must see falls if you are in the area.

Cathedral Falls were beautiful and it was a nice quick stop on our trip. It would be a nice place for a picnic also.

Great views if people with cameras get out of the way. It’s worth pulling off the road to see. We enjoyed it

Barely a trickle when we were there in early October. I'm sure it's nice when there is a good water flow. It is easily assessable and plenty of rocks to climb around on. Be careful though, there are lots of places to slip also. If...More

This is a nice waterfall just off the road. You can take a short walk to see the falls, but be careful since it can be a bit slippery and steep in spots. Parking can be a little tight, and keep a lookout as this...More

Fun, interactive waterfall in the sense that you can climb up through the creek or on the shore and get up close to the fall. Great pictures, but you may have to wait to get view of the fall without a lot of people in...More

This is a rare opportunity especially for those with mobility issues to simply pull off of the main road - step out of your car (or stay in) and get a fantastic look at a huge waterfall.
