It’s a beautiful place, parking lot is just a short walk from the gorgeous falls...just follow the sound. There are 2 nice large picnic tables at the falls. Reviews said to hike up river above the falls. Nothing was marked & ground was covered with wet leaves but we followed right up along the water and it was a beautiful walk. So much more to see, there were other cascades, water rushing over boulders, etc. Spring thaw is always a good time to be near waterfalls.
