This is more of a walk than a hike but beautiful nonetheless. Great one for kids.

Fun loop with a well established trail. Falls are nice but you can only go halfway down them. Swimming is not an option. Worth the effort!

Great short loop. Slippery after rain be careful!

One of the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen. Pretty easy hike as well.
