Short hike to the falls. If you are in the area looking to get some nice photos and fill some extra time I recommend it. You can easily be up and down in less than an hour

Short hike to the falls with a viewing area. Great for older adults who want to enjoy the beauty of a waterfall, but have some length limitations. The fall colors were spectacular!

Great hike for the whole family, even the little ones. Very low key.

Very nice falls that would probably be more appreciated if the hike to it was longer and tougher, but it's not.....it's short and easy.

Great hike with kids. Nice and easy. 15 minutes in and 15 minutes out. Make sure to save some time for the kids to play in the stream on the far side of the loop.

Very easy and not too impressive. Keep going further to the lakes for the real payoff.

Easy uphill hike to the nice falls. The trails are safe other than the one moose that crossed our path, but being in the afternoon it just laid down in the bushes to rest.

Easy sightseeing hike. Perfect short excursion for anyone that doesn't want anything too extended or strenuous but wants to see some sights. It was very busy the day we went and we saw all ages from young children to Golden Girls. The falls are pretty but to really see the best view you must climb down some rocks, and that may be beyond some ability/interest.

Short and easy hike, even with my 4 year old daughter and 9 year old son. There was enough elevation, twists/turns, and scenery to keep everyone entertained. After viewing from the main platform, we scaled down and found awesome, misty pics of the falls. I would definitely recommend for families or anyone looking for a short stroll!

Walked past the frozen falls about a mile and saw numerous elk tracks but no elk. The snow depth is deceptive. Easy to step slightly off trail and go waist deep. Would be an easy hike without snow.
