One of my fav spots in the area. New stairs to the upper falls look awesome. Get there early if you want a parking spot!

Beautiful!!! Who doesn't love a waterfall!!! Walked behind the falls... so cool! A bit narrow and damp... thrilling experience.

This is a nice trail to the waterfall, however check the water level, because there might not be much water... Parking and access is to the trailhead is little bit tricky.

Even on a rainy day this short hike to the platform and back was perfect. Falls are STUNNING, and enough incline to get the heart going. Popular, but I can see why. Loved it!
