it was such an amazing hike! We took the river trail mostly and I love how the terrain is always changing. the bridge and seeing all the holes in the rocks was really an interesting sight to see.

Very easy short walk. Great views of the falls from the bridge. Hike upriver for some amazing views and photo spots.

Love the falls. Have been many times and will return for sure. You can spend the day down at the lower falls hanging out by the water. Highly recommend

Awesome little trail. Easy hike about 20 mins to do the loop or you could walk to the upper falls in about 5 mins it’s very close to the parking lot. Upper falls is beautiful. Lower wasn’t super active so not as exciting but beautiful area to swim in the summer.

Great little hike. It’s short but you encounter everything from stunning views, to downhill path to the river. It’s so beautiful here! At the bottom there are tons of cairns, pretty magical little place. And the water was soo clear that you could see these awesome pools. Wish we were here in the summer so we could take a dip!

Nice easy trail lots of location to stop and take photos admire nature. At the lower falls you can take a dip in the river. Very beautiful.

great easy hike....counter-clockwise seems to have easiest elevation (and there is not much). Upper falls beautiful, lower falls not very impressive probably because river level is low this time of year.

Very easy walk through beautiful scenery and the falls are well worth a view. Opportunities for wading or just dabbling in the clear water either above the upper falls or below the lower. Look for the “rock garden” (of rocks) along the trail. Only one longer stretch of upward slope on the entire trail.

Amazing
