A great, unexpected area! The trail is a nice stroll and has several view points. You can climb down to the river at several parts, go wading, and hang out. It is not closed, and parking is free. If you are driving through the area, it is a must see!

A pleasant hike. Our 5-yr old loves every last step. The falls are blasting right now. It is a sight to behold.

A little muddy but always a great nature walk. Tons of mushrooms and beautiful scenery! Easy but a good place to stretch your legs on the drive over the pass.
