Great trail. Easy to find. Fantastic for dogs and kids. Both loved playing in the water.

This is a very easy trail. You can either park at the top and walk down to the falls and back up, or you can drive right now to the parking lot beside the falls.
I have done this in the summer and the winter and it is beautiful in both settings! The waterfall is beautiful and it is enjoyable to hang out right under them. There are some good view points on the hike!

Wonderful scenery! Very short hike from the campground with a few steps of steep hill. There is a daytime use picnic area as well as a campground with a self registration desk. Even on a long weekend we found empty spots. The management is very friendly and regularly patrols the campground. Very clean and well maintained.

We parked by the outhouses as the road to the falls was closed. And easy walk down the hill to the lookout. There had been heavy snowfall the two days prior so there was no trail. The frozen falls were beautiful. I always recommend this easy hike if in the area.

We parked from the first lookout and walked along the Ridge. The falls were beautiful however there was too much ice to make it down to the lower falls; beautiful day to eat lunch by the water though.

I started at the end because I was at the campground, but also did the hike from the main trailhead and I was at the falls without realizing I had gone 3KM. The falls themselves are well worth the walk. There is a scramble down to the lower falls but there are a set of climbing ropes making the ascent and descent manageable.

Easy walk with the beautiful fall at the end.
