Beautiful falls! We attempted to see the upper falls but the trails were unmarked, so we never ended up finding it. Trail was relatively easy to the lower falls and our 8 and 5 year old were able to make it up without a problem. We went on a Sunday so it was VERY crowded, but was still a nice hike with beautiful scenery.

Hiked this with my Wife, 3 year old, 8 month old and 2 dogs. Nice, easy hike. There are many stops along the trail to get out and explore the stream. The waterfall at the end was very pretty. A little crowded but that is to be expected on a 70 degree Saturday in February.

A nice, short hike in the woods to the falls. Easy access from highway. Parking lot can get crowded on weekends.

Easy 1 mike hike to see a small water fall. Worth the trip, would do again. Have other hikes planned for your trip, there is a lot close by.

It was a fun place to explore and there's an intense trail ahead of this one with rock climbing.
