A good waterfall to hike for (High Falls) that isn’t as crowded as Gooseberry. If you’re going to hit the other waterfalls, see them on the way - none are as impressive as High Falls. Also, a cool suspension bridge is just above the falls. P.S. Watch out for big scary black beetles flying around this time of year!

Great Hike! Took about 2 hours with two adults, two kids (10 & 8) and a dog. This trail goes down to both Two Step Falls and the High Falls. It also continues to the High Falls observation bridge. It does not go to Cascade Falls. If you plan on going down to see both falls plan on about 500 steps.

This is the hike to the High Falls from the Visitor Center. It also includes Cascade Falls. The shorter hike to High Falls does not go by Cascade Falls.

Nice easy hike up to a beautiful waterfall. A little crowded with people in some spots.

This is a wonderful hike with beautiful views. Be sure to take the trail down to the river and catch the beautiful photo ops.
