Great hike with lots of views of the river. Parking is minimal but worth it. The falls are picture perfect and there and several other areas where you can get down the the river.

We loved this hike. We only hiked about 2 miles out and then back but there were some great sights. Midnight Hole shouldn't be missed. Great little swimming spot with a fun rock jump. Mouse Creek Falls was beautiful as well. The hike wasn't difficult but definitely a memorable one (especially if you jump into the freezing water).
