This park is well-maintained and provides an enjoyable walk along a hard-packed clay trail. the first of three falls that you'll see is Factory Falls with the remains of an old stone mill nearby. Further on is Fulmer Falls which looks nice from the obstructed side view but does not offer a good view from below. And further down is Deer Leap Falls that flows from below the bridge and provides a shallow and picturesque swimming and picnic area below. You can also hike up the other side of the falls for different views.

Easy to do with kids. Come prepared for getting wet, there's a swimming hole at the bottom. Wear water shoes in the swimming hole, it's very slippery.

This was a cute, fun and scenic trail. It was pretty trafficked and hard to walk in some spots because of all of the people, but it was still a nice experience. The waterfalls were beautiful, and the trail was very easy to walk on. It was not steep/rocky/slippery from what I remember. It seemed good for all ages. I saw a few older people walking with ease, and my seven year old son was easily able to complete the trail. If you are in the area and want to walk and see some falls I definitely recommend checking this place out.

I absolutely adored this place, so we'll main yes by the national park service. Less than 2 miles out and back but you ca. Hike down either sides of the falls. Factory at the top was probably the most scenic fall to look at the middle falls, Fulmer, would likely be impressive but you're kept at a distance on the trails and there are obstructions. Some kids were swimming in this area and got scolded by a ranger. The bottom falls Deer Leap, seemed to allow swimming and it's a nice place to do so. Lots of stair throughout but a very scenic trail. I would definitely recommend.
