Fun quick stroll in a gorgeous forest. Almost nobody there on a nice saturday! Not difficult by any means but very pretty spot.

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.

This little trail is right off of US HWY 2. It's easy, well maintained, and fun with a great view of the falls.

Well maintained trail and good informational plaques. It's not very long but there are plenty of places to sneak down into the falls themselves and get your feet wet! Had never seen a stream take hard 90 degree turn to the right before! Would definitely take friends to go visit in the future.
