    Our family (me, wife, child age 12, child age 10, and child age 6) had a lot of fun! Once you turn into the woods, it doesn't take long to find the top of the falls. It's a beautiful sight looking down into the valley. There's plenty of places to stop and rest before making your way to the bottom of the falls. There is supposed to be a trail to the left of the falls which leads to the bottom, but we never found it. We did find the trail on the right and it was a fun little climb down to the bottom. The cave was fun to explore and our kids loved hopping on the rocks and crossing a log over the pool. We saw a trail to the left of the falls and took it back to the top, but we must have taken a wrong direction. We walked along the base of the cliff walls and found our way to the top of the valley. Unfortunately, it put us a good 1/2 mile down a "road" being used for clear-cutting the forest. It was a tangle of tree limbs covering the entire road. We walked on top of the cut-down trees and brush until we made our way back to the top of the falls. While the unexpected detour and dangerous "road" made it a little exciting, we had a lot of fun and plan to go again.
