The road to the trail was closed with no warning from the main road. It would have been a 10km walk to get to the trailhead. Disappointing. :(

The size of these falls are, in my opinion, a must see! You can also hike up quite a ways to the falls, climbing over good sized rocks.

Not really a hike. It's more of a short walk. A walk up the side of the falls is a must! It is magnificent! It could get really busy with all the tourists, so make sure you do this early in the day.

Easy walk in a gorgeous area, to see one of the tallest Falls in North America. Worth it if you have the time

I wouldn't necessarily call this a hike. it's about a 10 minute walk from the parking lot. Amazing views of the falls and you can climb up the rocks next to the falls to get a closer look. Definetly worth the stop if you are in the area. If you want to hike continue on the trail past the campsite and you will continue to a variety of sights including Laughing Falls, Twin falls, etc.

As mentioned its a easy walk, the falls itself are spectacular, was getting sprayed quite heavily while taking photos. My sunglasses were also fogging up how cool the water was. Worth the drive
