This “trail” is really short and simple, but the waterfall is stunning! This is a great stop for folks who don’t really dig hiking or the outdoors. It’s an easy way to see some beautiful scenery without breaking a sweat.

It's a very simple trail. The water fall is always magnificent but the lack of a hike and adventure always make this fall overly simple. It's great for people who don't like hiking or challenges.

Beautiful waterfall, right next to the road, so you don’t really have to hike if you don’t want to. Possibly the most photographed waterfall in the area.......

Went there on Saturday. You can walk down to the bottom. Can see waterfall from road. Perfect view for folks who can’t do stairs.

Not even a hike, it can be seen from the road but it is definitely worth stopping at. Since it is super easy to get to it is one of the busiest stops but still worth the stop. Definitely bigger than it looks in the pictures.

Super easy to access waterfall. Very impressive how big it was! Wasn't too crowded this time of year, but I could see it getting very busy during the summer/fall.

Just a decent flight of stairs right off the road! There is a trail around it but, it isn’t necessary if you’re not a hiker but want to see these beautiful falls! It’s totally worth the drive, but none of us (11 of us) had phone reception out there (and I loved it!)

Beautiful 60 ft. waterfall right off the side of the HWY. Steps lead down to the falls for a close-up view with different levels to stop and look. You can venture onto the rocks in the stream below the falls, and even do some wading and swim. For photographs, the sun comes up over the waterfall in the morning. Definitely worth the stop but wouldn’t consider it a hike. Especially since you can see it from your vehicle.

Just off the side of the road. Easy view from car - several platforms to view the falls.

It isn’t a trail. Follow side walk to steep stairs that’ll lead you to the first overlook of the waterfalls. Keep going down and you’ll be rewarded with a closer look. Visited on a Thursday afternoon after hiking the Looking Glass Trail and was busy with visitors. Beautiful waterfalls.
