Nice views, easy trail, but very crowded. The stairs to the bottom of the falls is closed due to storm damage.

Maybe the best of the Plateau waterfalls. Great overlooks and a moderate trail to the base of the falls. Awesome photo opportunities. Crazy packed on weekends (overflow parking lot fills fast)

I live in waterfall paradise in Oregon & Washington but Burgess Falls are as spectacular as the ones we have at home. The hike is easy and provides great views and wonderful for photography. I have posted some photos from last year (Nov 2015) when the rains were falling hard and the water is running high and added more from last week (Nov 2016) during the drought and both versions are beautiful. The Park Rangers also had some corn snakes for everyone to get up close & personal with and they were colorful creatures as well. I will come back next year and praying the area gets the much needed rain to put out the local fires and add more H20 to the river.
