Was a bit disappointed this wasn’t as long as I thought it was and more of a walk than a hike. It’s main attraction is the fish ladder. No pass is need to park.

Not much of a hike but a nice spot to chill by the rocks with the relaxing sound of the water especially on a hot summer day. However when you do please clean up after yourself. I found disgarded clothing, picnic food scraps by the small sandy area today and nothing irks me more than when people trash our beautiful parks.

Super fun, great for kids small and nice way to get them used to walking out doors. Rocks are super easy to climb, water easy to access

This is such a beautiful place. Great for your daily devotional or a peaceful walk down the river. Easy access

Indeed this is not much of a track, you drive over there, park on what looks like an improvised place on the road, and walk down either a 2/5 mile trail or go down the stairs to see the falls.

The visual is amazing, rocks, river, and little falls. Some folks venture to the river band and have a good time.

As the first trail I took my baby to this was perfect. Easy walk, quick immersion in this beautiful place.

Graffiti and cigarette butts everywhere. The river was pretty but I wouldn't classify this as a hike.

Nice short scenic hike to the falls/river. There were swimming areas to climb down to outside of the current. Lots of big rocks for my 10 and 12 year old boys to jump from.
