The waterfall, spring and trail are all beautiful anytime of the year.

Pretty views, nice park, narrow trails kind of cause traffic jams on this trail when busy. Worth the drive. Park entrance is $5 per car, 2 other trails in the park.

This was the first of three stops on a mini-road trip to OK, so we didn't spend as much time here as we might have liked. We did the main trail to/around the falls, and will absolutely be back to see it in the Spring or Summer. The falls are gorgeous, and the path to the little lake is quite pleasant.

Wish the water fall had more water, maybe I just went in expecting more from the falls like the pictures...

Hike was great. We ended up walking around a few other trails but not to full completion. Views are beautiful. This was my first hike outside of my own town.

Beautiful park. Very kid friendly. Hiked part of the Dripping Springs Trail and the Fox Den Trail with my 3 year old right after a heavy rain. The views were incredible. Waterfall can be viewed from the top observation deck and from down below.

First half of the Dripping Springs Trail follows the creek. When we hit the little damn overflow, we took a right, crossed the creek and connected to the Fox Den Trail. The Fox Den Trail was mostly just wooded area. Wish we would of stayed on the Dripping Springs Trail although crossing the stones over the creek was lots of fun.

Highly recommend this hike, especially with kids. The entire park is very family friendly.

I loved this hike. I did the falls trail. It was gorgeous! I did not expect to be blown away but I was. The hike was easy. And there was a lot of scenery with it. It was a short 45 minute in and out but I was sweating on an 80 degree day. I would highly recommend this hike to anyone!

Had a lot of fun took the family only complaint is that when you get to the bottom of the falls there is a top hand rail but no middle one I tried to let my daughter walk around but was afraid she would fall the falls though were absolutely beautiful

Only thing to disappoint me was that the big fall wasn't flowing. Still beautiful and fun though.

decent trails with lots of people and foot traffic. nothing too difficult or steep. Saw lots of trash near the creek bed including someones socks, and 3 or 4 water bottles... 5 dollars entrance fee, lots of crying kids, and people smoking on trail.

The hike is relatively short and easy. There is a couple of parts along the trail when you should take your age into consideration. The walk down to the falls has a few rough spots. The falls were beautiful. Although The top fall wasn't flowing when we went to the park it was worth the drive. I suggest going after a heavy rain, and also be prepared to pay a $5 entrance fee.

I did a quick trip to the park. Loved the falls! There is a place to view the falls from above and below. Walked the trail to the lake also, not very accessible for someone that can't get around well.
