“Short & sweet”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Only 4 miles from the hot springs and only a mile round trip to the falls with several stopping points highlighting local history. Plenty of wild raspberries along the trail too.

“Beautiful.”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Easy marked trails. Slightly steep but worth the trip, beautiful. Take the camera. Picture signs share history of area. Good size parking lot.
Kids 6 and up usually can climb it.

“More taxing than expected”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

Waterfalls have a definite allure as do hikes with valley views. This has both - but it isn't for the faint hearted. It may be only half a mile but it is at high altitude (9,000+ ft) over rough, rocky terrain. It took my son and I 25 minutes to ascend and my heart was pounding at 125 beats/minute when I arrived. One frequent visitor said the path had deteriorated with some parts requiring walking through underbrush and streams. My wife made it halfway and skipped the rest. The historic placards are worth reading but need to be refurbished.

“A lovely short hike to the falls”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

This is must-see because it's beautiful and doable. Although, for those who may have some injuries or disabilities, keep in mind that you have some high steps and minor climbing in order to see the actual falls.

“Moderately Well Maintained Trail?”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

Short but sweet hike, but if you are not used to the altitude and spoiled by the "rugged" rating of the state parks in the Midwest, this is going to be a bit of a challenge. Still worth it to see the falls!
