Went in late summer, the water level was low enough to get closer to the falls by hopping on rocks. love this place.

What a great waterfall, it's a bit of a shame you don't really have to "earn it" to get there. If this was 6 or 7 miles deep into a trail there would be far less littering and destruction. With a reduction in visitors, you could only hope the people who really respected the waterfall and the risk of jumping it would be the one's visiting it. However, this is just a fantasy, and now the waterfall is fenced and patrolled regularly. Still a great spot, something to do on a day off in the summer with friends.

This is more of a park than a trail.

A little slippery in the winter but worth it for the photos!

Fantastic park. The waterfalls are beautiful. Lots of playgrounds around the parks (like 15 of them) for kids to play on. We only did the hike from above the falls to the bottom which took about 45 minutes with three small kids, but it looked like the trails went a lot further. Definitely an area we will be back to explore.

I did this trail in March as part of my snowshoe adventure!
Finding a place to park was the challenge for someone who had never been here before and I think direction and road signage could be more outsider friendly.

Having said that, once I found the trail is was very enjoyable. Because I was there in the "off season" I had the park pretty much to myself with the exception of a few dog walkers.

This spot is located right in the park, so like everyone else says, alot of people will be around. There is different spots where you can jump of the falls, i would say 15ft, 20ft, 25ft, and 60ft. I went when the water was low, and I still didn't touch the bottom, very deep, but cold swimming hole (ALways shady) It's great landscape, but no hiking, mountain biking, etc. More or less a camp site or picnic area.

Was a very beautiful fall. Was easy hiking. If your just looking for something to do that don't take hours this is a great idea for family's. It was easy to find and was a nice drive too.

I give this three stars due to the high amount of people and easyness of the trail. It's in a park so close parking is available very close to the falls. The falls itself is very nice view spot. worth a stop in if you a around the area. Just except high traffic of people.

A beautiful walk through a typical eastern woods along a pleasant creek. Go in the fall for beautiful autumn colors. There are also facilities available for picnicking.
