“Pretty falls with a rocky hike”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

We went to Shelving Rock Falls after visiting Prospect Mountain. The falls are nice to see and pretty, but they are small. Just be advised the road we took to get there was beyond "dirt road" and you need to drive slow on it. Also, the path you have to hike to get to the falls is rocky, so if you have any disability or are elderly, I would say to skip this one. My sons who are 19 & 25 enjoyed it, but we do like nature hikes.

“Nice hike! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

Very nice and easy hike . Nice place to take pictures. Hike kind of stopped abruptly and wasn't sure were to go. Ride up to the trail is kind of scary especially if you have a bigger vehicle we had to push our windows in. Well worth the drive though.

“A nice hike”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

This was a nice hike but I was totally disappointed in the viewing areas for the falls. We really had to venture off the path in order to take decent pictures. Very unsafe.

Had a great hike, make sure you wear good boots, bring water, if i recall we hiked a few hours so if you are not in halfway decent shape, be prepared!
