What a wonderful place we'll worth the 2.5 hour drive. My German Shepherd went swimming the weather was in the high 70's. I will be coming back to camp and go to the cavern.

Hardly a hike at all, but loads of fun stuff to see with the spring, waterfall, and the old mill. Beautiful spot for stargazing as well. The hike down to the waterfall takes less than 20 minutes.

Really beautiful! We had our baby with us in a carrier and it was a nice, easy trail with plenty of shade. Would definitely visit again!

This is a rather easy, yet beautiful trail! After leading down the wooden walk way, you'll come to a small parking lot. Head to your right about 30 yards down to a trail. Back track down this trail. You'll come to the ruins of an old mill, & the falls are just beyond. Beautiful area for pictures! This was the 1st waterfall "hike" I took my family on!

Such a beautiful place my family enjoyed every minute we were there! The trail is wet so be prepared for muddy feet! We walked the trail with my 2 year old it was super easy and kid friendly!

A beautiful trail that is very accessible. It is a very short walk from the parking area to the springs. It also is very level so it is perfect for the elderly or for small children.

Great trail but trail and creek crossing by old mill and spillway is washed out currently.

We really enjoyed our walk here in Dec 2017.... our only problem was trying to cross the river to walk back the other side. My legs aren't the longest and trying to jump to the next stepping stone had us laughing so much that I nearly didn't make it! It was very dry at the time, I hate to think how I'd have managed if it had been very wet. We note from another walker's trail
map 4 years ago, he had the same problem!

I hiked this lovely trail with my 1 year old harnessed to my body. It's short and simple but you get to see the beautiful creation of the CCC at the end.

the waterfall from the dam is very nice and the mill ruin is great! the walking trail was okay and a little slick with the conditions. wear comfortable waterproof boots if you are more adventurous.

Easy, beautiful trail that takes you to old mill ruins and a 3-tiered waterfall just below mirror lake.

This is a very easy and accessible trail. The old mill ruins below are beautiful with the summer greenery framing what is left of the structure. The falls from the lake are pretty to see. Fishing permitted in the lake with proper permits. Great opportunities for photos!

The waterfall and the old mill down below it were very beautiful! We just went on a family hike here for Easter. It was really pretty. We also walked up to where the Springs are (a very short walk down an easy path). A beautiful area -- I would definitely recommend. The area above the falls is very still and next time we want to bring some fishing gear!

Pretty hike even in winter. We started at the trail that was in the same vicinity of the springs. It took us alongside Mirror Lake to the dam site. From there we hiked down to the falls, followed the stream until we could cross to the other side and then back up to the falls. Don't miss out on the short walk to Blanchard Springs while you are there as well. Very picturesque.

Mirror Lake is a modest trail around a beautiful little lake. The hike takes you around the lake. The highlight is the overflow and waterfall. Also located below the dam is the remnants of an old stone mill. Very Picturesque. Great trail for the whole family.
