Great for a quick and easy look at some falls. Easy trails around the top and easy trails to get down to the bottom of the falls. Beautiful view.

We debated driving right up to the falls, but we are glad we didn't. Taking the hike beside the canyon is well worth the views.

Beautiful scenery. The trail can be a tad slippery..I recommend good shoes with grip. Their is a rope that helps guide you down to the first lower level of the falls. The trail itself is not so bad.. Kids can do this but I wouldn't recommend toddlers. The falls are breathtaking!

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.

Awesome! Spectacular views along the whole way. Careful with dogs as there is steep slopes. Easy path to walk along. If you have family that can't hike then they can drive to the falls and meet you there. Well worth the hike.

Pretty easy hike. Started at the look out point and hiked from there to the falls. Lots of people and trail was very muddy and wet from all the rain that we have been getting but wow what a view. Take the rope down to the base of the falls, very cool. took use about 4 hours but we stopped a lot to take in the views.

The hike was good, the trail was pretty easy untill you started to go down to the river side. To get down to the first 2 falls was good, but to get down to the third was more scree than anything thing with very loose rock wall. Just watch your footing and you'll be ok. It's an awesome adventure for the morning. =)
