  • We visited the falls via kayak. It was great to be able to walk all around the area. The pillars are awesome. The river rushes through in so many different ways. The kids really enjoyed it...

  • This is a beautiful, natural sight. That said, you need a vehicle capable of offroading to follow google directions to a cliff overlook. We did not, so we parked and walked. There are thousands of katidids flying helter shelter as you walk through the dry grasses, as well as shotgun shells everywhere. The only way you see many of the views shown in photographs is to enter the river to the west and travel the river. From above, you are far away. It is still a beautiful view though. Just know maps is trying to have you drive through the rocky grasses.
  • This is a really fun area to explore around. I think kayaks make it easiest so you don't have to walk through the waterfalls very much, although we walked through a few small waterfalls in chacos and were fine. There were lots of people fishing and chilling here. If you go to the far end of the rocks, toward Shoshone falls, there's a nice like Sandy put-in to take a boat or kayak further up.
