Trail to scenic Hanging Rock State Park Upper Cascades Falls and short wheelchair-accessible Rock Garden trail leading to a rock outcrop.

more of a Stairway than a trail but the waterfall is a good place for kids and dogs to play around in.

Nice short hike. Of the waterfalls by the Visitor Center, this was the best one we saw. The walk to the rock garden is short, but has some big rocks to walk among.

A short and family-friendly hike to a nice waterfall. The trail starts near the entrance to the visitor center parking area. Be sure to climb down from the deck for a closeup view of the falls.

Short hike to an interpretive Rock Garden which is wheelchair accessible and further hike to the Upper Cascade Falls which are impressive. Park at far left end of VC parking lot for easiest access and take the trail across the street. Nice decking for a picnic at the falls.
