Kinda busy- but a nice hike. Be aware you need cash or check to pay the parking fee- no one was at the entrance when we went so payment had to be made at the parking lot- bring your $5- even though no one was available to collect the fee, they sure had people riding around handing out warning citations- you think they’d have someone collecting if they can hand out citations.

We did this in April of 2016. A small hike down to the falls, be prepared for the elevation change. Great view of the falls. We had a lot of people traffic. A lot of people going off trail to get closer. Clearly marked and maintained.

Short hike down, but longer coming back up! Waterfall is absolutely beautiful. . Make sure to see both..

Beautiful place. Well-maintained and the falls are gorgeous, there are two. If you can’t do stairways this is not the place for you. There are 600 stairs if you go to both ends of the waterfall trail.

These are some of the best waterfalls I've ever been to!

Nice waterfalls. Hiked here a year ago though and there was not much water, just a trickle. This time, thanks to Irma, there was good flow.

it's not so bad, there are a lot of rest stops along the way. if you are healthy and have no knee issues or heart issues you can see how you go, there are enough stops and benches that you can wait or turn back ... my Siberians were not so happy with the iron grate stairs but they did it. little dogs won't be happy with the stairs as it may hurt their paws or their paws may slip through. I saw many people carry their little dogs. I really enjoyed the scenery and the waterfall.
