  • An amazing hike. Was incredibly packed though. But after weeks of rain I could totally understand that. It is well shaded and much cooler than I was expecting. The falls were BEAUTIFUL, but that day was more crowded than I would have liked. I will definitely come back, but I think that the weekend, mid day, might be too much for me.
  • The hike and falls are wonderful! Worth the trip! Only drawback: in the pool beneath the falls, too many people let their dogs run wild - 6 when we were there (not even a busy day.) They don’t feel compelled to keep dogs on a leash, even though all of the signs instruct them to. Otherwise, this is a perfect little hike!
