  • This is a decent hike for a short bit of exercise with a dog but it is always quite crowded. They now charge for parking in the small lot. I have not been in quite some time so I don't know when it started or how much because I usually park on the street. The area around the falls is kind of dirty and gross. It is quite scenic on the way up with the houses and views.
  • The hike to get to the falls is a bit hilly, but any well-prepared beginner can complete it (be sure to bring lots of water!). There is a small paid parking lot ($8) that was CASH ONLY and exact change required.
