Good little hike around the falls area. As others have said if you opt do go down to the falls, expect a somewhat steep grade. Near the bottom there are two nice ropes that can help you get down and back up. Pretty good views of the falls and you can get right up near the top of them. We were warned about rattlesnakes before going, but didn't encounter any. Would recommend if you have an afternoon to kill.
This is not a 13 mile hike. youth can pull right up to the falls, walk 300ft and your there. However, you can try and hike down the base of the fall. It is not recommended but nor prohibited.
We walked to the top of the fall out was probably 3 miles round trip.
worth seeking tho. you can also set up a tent and stay the night :p
Requires a discovery pass but they also have a dozen free days. Either way get here early. There are a few steep goat track areas and one or two places you need to shimmy through to get to the bottom of the falls, but I wouldn't say it's difficult. We brought a young dog and he wouldn't do it. Pretty big waterfall in the spring, sunny and windy.

Completed most of the hike. The falls was definitely beautiful this time of year. Pretty steep to get down to the bottom of the falls with plenty of loose rock. Be prepared for some wind. A great place to check out. Plenty of YouTube videos and the site of the World Record manned kayak going over a waterfall. Approx. 190 feet.
No cell service in the park, so bring cash or your Discover Pass. The crowd was getting pretty thick as we came out around noon, but was light early in the morning.
