  • We found ourselves on the roadside entrance that allows two cars to park. There was a small area with two picnic tables and a locator sign. Walking along the trails you really can't help but wonder how so much garbage could have accumulated in this small of an area. Once we made it to the bridge there were excellent views of the river and surroundings. There is so much to see and explore in this area but the preserves are not being maintained unfortunately.
  • Easy hike around the falls. A beautiful bridge and several old buildings. Beautiful photograph opportunity.
