Great hike for kids or adults looking for an easy hike. Picnic tables at the falls to enjoy a lunch.

Falls were thundering today!! Easy hike overall (well-maintained, hard-packed trail), but be prepared for elevation changes. Good hike to do with kids.

Beautiful, relatively easy hike (0.8 miles each way, 1.6 miles round trip). The forest and river are beautiful, and the waterfall is really nice. The waterfall itself wasn't frozen during our April hike, but there were some pretty icicles. The second half of the trail was quite icy when we were there and the rocks at the bottom of the staircase (base of falls) were very slick. This hike definitely rates as "easy," but was slightly more challenging than we expected. Overall, a beautiful short outing.
