I was so glad I got to enjoy this hike on a crisp autumn day. I can't wait to come back for the spring. Getting there when it first opened meant that the falls were vacant and I could take my time enjoying in the quiet. This place becomes packed around noon.

Had a great time hiking up and back on this trail. Temperature was in the 40's with sporadic sunshine. If you are a photo buff, take your camera. You won't regret it. Hiking poles were extremely helpful.

Went today with temps in the low-mid 40s. Really cold but really great hike. Most of the top of the waterfall was frozen. Trail is steep in a lot of places and you need good shoes. Lots of places to rest and take pics. Great trail.

This trail was heavily trafficked. I went on a breezy fall day which made for a nice hike. The waterfall is breathe taking, and there are plenty of places to step aside to stop and take photos.

Lovely hike. If you do a good clip, it's going to be a great butt burner cause it is ALL up hill. Be prepared for about 100 stairs periodically throughout this hike. There are about 3 great step offs for the falls. Something to keep in mind though, if you are picturing seeing the entirety of this waterfall at any one point you will be disappointed. This is because these falls are, though one of the tallest east of the Mississippi, staggered over ledges and rocks. So you will only be able to see small parts at any one point. With that said - this is a beautiful hike well worth the exertion.

Beautiful falls and hike. This was my first hike and the first time I saw a waterfall and it just blew my mind with the beauty and tranquility.
