  • Wear shoes with good tread and maybe bring gloves if you plan on going to the base of the falls. There are some ropes to use to climb down the steep ravine but there is also a very nice platform if you are not up for the scramble down to the bottom. Gets busy during nice weather. Limited parking.
  • Short climb down. Beautiful falls. There is an easy access wood deck at top to get a decent view, then a harder to access climb down to get in our get a better view. Do NOT go barefoot in the water. There is broken glass from idiots here and there. Water is freezing cold, it is mid May now. Loads of fun acting like a viking with the kids in the water fall though. We mostly ignored the ropes, as they are tied weird and don't provide any real support, more so marking the recommended path. The parking is very small and easier going up hill than down. Good stop for an hour of water fun
