Extremely informative good for any level of activity.

This is the same area as Jim Jontz Fall Creek Gorge Nature Preserve: it includes the Potholes (large ovals created by glacial activity and then water wearing away at the stone), as well as the waterfalls further up the trail. There are two sets of short somewhat steep sets of stairs, but should be fine for most people and even kids. Stay on the main trail and do not take what appear to be trails that traverse dangerously close to the edges of the gorge and then disappear. You will still be able to get beautiful pictures. There is one small area between the stairways that require you to cross the stream, but even in full flow, these are more like rivulets running over stone. You don’t need to get wet.
