  • Short trail behind the vistor center that is very easy and mostly flat with beautiful scenery and a water fall. Highly recommend for family's with any age .

  • Trail was short and easy. Be sure to stay on path. The path divides follow the signs. Gift shop inside must wear mask.

  • Go and find out for yourself it's worth it
  • Beautiful trail that's easy for hikers of any level. I went early May in the morning on a Sunday and it wasn't very busy at all. The waterfall isn't the largest but it was still pretty and I recommend going from the parking to the falls if you have eager children.
