Hiked with my dog during golden hour, saw at least a dozen deer, found the trail well-maintained and challenging. Although the falls aren't much to look at this late in the summer, the scenery and workout are well worth the hike.

When I hiked to the falls in July, it was a mere trickle. My understanding is that it is more impressive in the earlier spring when snowmelt is greater. Very nice hike and pretty views along the way; we saw LOTS of deer. (:
