Very beautiful trail that is a very easy walk. The road to the trail has a lot of potholes, so be careful.

This was an educational hike for my friends and our children (13, 7, 6, 4). This trail offers a history lesson via plaques placed around the first loop of the trail. Perfect for this long vacation from school. Our group chose to have lunch by the Ranger Hole, and everyone enjoyed the scenery and peaceful atmosphere.

Fee is required! Must purchase interagency pass or something else. I got lucky and did not get a ticket but there are many signs that say a pass is required. The falls were beautiful of course!

The water is beautiful but it is hard to get to with little kids. Great place to swim as well!!!

My boyfriend and I took this trail. It's somewhat easy to get down, but when you get down to the bottom there's a bridge where the trail continues and it's a pretty far hike. The trail down is pretty nice, it's a back and forth stair case like trail with a somewhat narrow ridge. When you get to the bottom there's a beautiful water area that has great opportunity for picture taking. When you go along the path it can be a bit intimidating because it's still a long way down and the path is a little unsuspecting because it appears to head upwards but it does not go back to the campgrounds. Beautiful trail but the climb back up was more then I suspected!
