  • Just a short hike to this beautiful waterfall was very worth it! The cost to get into the park is $5 per adult and $1 per child but it is used to maintain the restrooms and hiking path.

  • Short but absolutely gorgeous hike with a spectacular waterfall at the end. I brought 3 kids with me and they all had a blast, the hike was just long enough for the little one, and there was a little area they could play in the water (small puddle) by the waterfall. The entrance fee is more than reasonable, $5 for adults, $1 for kids. 10/10 would recommend 💛
  • Absolute must see!!! Beautiful and relaxing. Picnic tables along the way for a nice lunch. Picture taking paradise 😁. Will definitely go back!!!! Highly recommend
