  • A wonderful and easy hike led us to the beautiful falls. Right off the highway. Easy hike with 2 small kids.  more »
  • We so enjoyed seeing the beautiful falls. We arrived early morning and it wasn’t crowded. It is a short walk down a hill but certainly worth it!  more »
  • Nice shady, easy hike. The waterfall itself was crowded, so don't take this hike if your looking for seclusion. However, walk under the waterfall and continue on the hike, there's a nice view of the river at the end of the trail. Overall a nice moderate walk
  • Beautiful simple walk to the falls. Really cool that you can walk behind it. Was pretty busy when we went. Walk all the way around for another view outlook
