Beautiful, easy trail with a gorgeous waterfall at its end. Great place to take kids and pets.

This is a very easy hike to the base of the falls. It is a direct, flat wide path and you can easily hike this trail without hiking shoes or boots. The trail is parallel to a river for its entire length. The trail is open to the sun at times and covered by trees at other points.

Things to know:

You can not actually get to the base of the falls as the trail ends at an outlook which is a safe distance from the falls and any falling rocks

Wear water shoes if possible as you can walk in the flat bed river next to the trail and the kids love this

Across the street is a state park which you can walk or drive to. There is a large playground there and places to grill and eat right on the water
