  • Beautiful place! The fall is really nice. The drive there is a little challenging but it’s well worth it. Beautiful falls and great views. It gets a little rocky once you are down there and you have to be very careful. But it’s well worth it. The views are amazing and the water is really cold. You will not want to leave.
