Easy trail, not too long. Portions are closed due to damage. Absolutely beautiful falls.

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.

We traveled the service road but probably could have done the trail at the same speed. The falls are amazing to see. At the overlook, we went down to the waters above the falls. Tons of shells. Not super water-play friendly but fun just the same. Also, from the parking lot, we took a short trail to the first falls and saw the old wood bridge (not accessible and not usable). This is a great trail/area for younger families because they also have a playground. You could make a day of it if you pack a lunch.

Absolutely breath taking views! The trail to the last outlook is easy. Hiking down to the top of the falls is pretty steep but doable and most certainly worth it! Unfortunately the staircase to the bottom of the falls was under renovations and we were unable to access it. Overall it's it worth the stop. We did the hike in a little under an hour with stops to enjoy the scenery. And it's only about 15 mins off hwy 40.
