Really not much to look at, except for a short hike area, and it's all fenced off anyway. Disappointed but checked off my list

What an ethereal sight of a winter waterfall. A frozen palace. Bundle up and go see it for yourself.

Went in late summer, the water level was low enough to get closer to the falls by hopping on rocks. love this place.

What a great waterfall, it's a bit of a shame you don't really have to "earn it" to get there. If this was 6 or 7 miles deep into a trail there would be far less littering and destruction. With a reduction in visitors, you could only hope the people who really respected the waterfall and the risk of jumping it would be the one's visiting it. However, this is just a fantasy, and now the waterfall is fenced and patrolled regularly. Still a great spot, something to do on a day off in the summer with friends.
