1st Falls is only a 10 minute hike and great for swimming. Next 2 are an hour plus through a very thin overgrown path. Literally was only one on the trail all day and both upper falls are impressive but tough to see as they are largely in a crevasse.

Beautiful and peaceful. A little difficult finding the trail after the first fall, but mostly was well marked.

Great views and easy walking. We didn't have any trouble keeping on the trail like others suggested.

Easy and beautiful! Sadly the water was very low, but a good afternoon walk.

Nice trail surface but steep slope due to trail being along brook and within crevasse.
