Very nice trail w/ falls, creek along the trail & you hear sound of gushing waters, went on a hot & humid day & saw lots of children dipping in d creek having fun overall it's a good experience w/ family the only thing is it's crowded esp if it's good weather .

This is one of my favorites to do with or without kids. It's an easy loop with lots of views of the creek and eventually the Mississippi. The only downside is it's often crowded. But worth the walk anyway. Falls are beautiful.

I love this trail. You get river shore, waterfalls, a restaurant, historical sites - it literally has everything. If you're tempted to turn around at the gum tree, don't! Only downfall of this park is how popular it is at ALL times of the day and week/weekend.

Great escape from the city-life. Lots of dog watching. But can get very crowded.

I absolutely love this trail... it does get crowded sometimes, but with a 50 foot waterfall heading the trail, it is definitely a good visit. I bring visiting family here all the time.
