Love the trail and falls. I highly recommend going past the main entrance and heading up the hill to the two overlooks. Water flow was a little low when I went but still absolutely beautiful falls!

Beautiful, well traveled, and easy trail. Took my parents when they came to visit and they were very impressed.

great hike if you do the loop taking the north rim trail to the south rim trail, about 3 miles with ups and downs. Great views!!

a beautiful waterfall, we hiked (which was pretty much a straight walk) to the bottom of it which took about 25 minutes. wish we got to see the top view of it! nothing else too exciting though.
