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.

We did this in April of 2016. It was a good length trail that followed the rim trail. Great views of the floor below, true sense of the elevation. The trail was well maintained and clearly marked. Definitely worth it if you’re in the area.

Great views of canyon on rim trail. No sure about it being on any top 10 list but it was nice. Trail is heavily trafficked and show signs of wear and tear in a few locations. Nice area altogether though. .
