The Waterfalls Trail begins on a paved section of the park at the main overlook. Parking is available in an adjacent lot. The trail progresses into the canyon on a 40-degree slope. Most of the trail consists of gravel and stairsteps, numbering over 1200 in all. Both waterfalls cascade off sheer faces at 60 and 90 feet, and are among the most beautiful in the state. Swimming and climbing on rocks are strictly forbidden, and regulations are enforced.

Very beautiful here! I loved the waterfall! We will definitely be back this summer! Must warn though...there are a lot of steep hills and lots of steps. It was worth it for the views and physical challenge!

Amazing views of the canyons and waterfalls, so lush and green. Would love to come back during the fall season.
