Nice short hike. Picnic tables etc. at trailhead parking lot. Very pretty. Good hike for families and people who have difficulties on unimproved trails.

I didn’t actually love that it was paved, but it would be great for families with kids and strollers. The waterfall at the end was very pretty and offers the chance to scramble up to get closer to the foot of it if you choose.

Pretty breathtaking scene at the end of this trail. While this trail is short and busy, this is definitely worth your time if you are visiting for a short time or if accessibility is a high priority. Great hike to take newcomers and visitors to town on.

Georgeous! Gets really busy but I think there’s plenty to see just past the falls. And most of the traffic dyes off there!

Easy hike up to the falls, to get a better view keep climbing up the rocks to the left of the falls. You can go up pretty high and get some great views!

Super easy hike with an absolutely beautiful waterfall. My husband and I were thoroughly pleased with the overall experience of this trail.

Beautiful in the winter time. The gate will be closed at the first parking lot past the dam when you make the left turn up for palisades. So it adds about an extra mile each way to the hike. Worth it.

Gorgeous short hike. Snow up to my knees but still doable. ✌

The trail and the falls were fantastic. Be sure though to lock your doors and remove your hitch as ours was stolen.

Been here a few times with my family. Very easy short hike to the falls, paved and easy for kids and older people. Usually pretty busy so if you want to be alone go early

Crowded for July 4th but easy hike through beautiful surroundings. The waterfall is gorgeous.
