Perfect for short walk with family. Well maintained trail and stairs with several places to observe the falls and learn a little local history and ecology.

Very easy and short hike. The waterfalls were pretty close to the parking lot, so even grandma/grandpa could go check them out. There are several trails in the area, so we did 3 separate short hikes.

The first waterfall is wheelchair and stroller accessible. We went when the leaves were changing and our photos could've been taken from calendars or postcards. Easy hike but if you really want to enjoy it you'll need extra time to soak in the views.

We only saw two other people the whole time we were there. Very secluded. Extra large waterfalls to climb around. Nice swimming holes as well. Not too strenuous but rocky at some parts. Took about an hour, maybe a little less.

Well kept walking paths. Beautiful area with multiple waterfalls and pools. Be ready for hills - all downhill then back up the hill!

Great trail for little kids. My 5 & 3 year old walked eagerly around and my 8 month old loved looking at the streams and waterfalls. I loved it too. Very beautiful.

I took my 5 year old daughter today, she loved it. It was easy for her to do. There are stairs and a path to walk on. The waterfalls here are absolutely beautiful. Very relaxing and easy trail, will be doing it again very soon.

Easy walk among tree shaded paths with lots of wooden steps. Plenty of wooden viewing platforms to see the waterfalls which are beautiful. Maybe a mile or so round trip. It's worth visiting especially if u don't have much time.

This is an easy walk on improved trail, with wood steps and viewing platforms at the three waterfalls. It's east to find the trail head. The access road to the parking lot is paved and there is plenty of free parking, with bathroom facilities (no running water). The parking lot fills quickly on weekends, during the fall colors.
