Beautiful views even with the stairs going down to the bottom of the falls being closed. Plenty of fish and wildlife to see . The water is cold year round . And plenty of bass to catch .

Very scenic trail. Perfect introductory trail for experiencing the best natural features at the edge of the plateau. Good afternoon excursion!

Great scenery! Easy to moderate difficulty, but worth the views! The stairs to get to the bottom of the waterfall were closed when I went due to structural damage but you can climb to the top of the waterfall and there is a good view from across the river!

Great, though flood waters have damaged the portion of the trail leading Down to the base of the falls.

This place is beautiful. I use to come down here as a child and play in the falls and it's sad to see everything closed down with no swimming signs everywhere.

What an incredible day we spend, my husband and I have given ourselves the task of knowing the nature more serca and every Sunday we will be visiting places and uploading photos of nature that God gave us!

The end waterfall was stunning. It was a nice stroll down to the falls and it was worth it. It was huge and breathtaking up close.
