HikingGreat!

5/8/2021. R. We only walked from the parking lot down the trail that was some dirt and some steps to the 3 viewing platforms and back but what an awesome view.

Take the paved path rather than the stairs. But awesome view of the falls.

Absolutely amazing waterfall! The spring water flow is intense! And there’s something about the color that just adds to how special the falls looks. A really nice park and trail all around that most anyone should be able to do.

Beautiful view of the waterfall! There are 2 options when you park in the parking lot - you can take a quick paved path down to the falls (which seemed much less crowded) or you can take a set of stairs from the parking lot straight down to the falls. Take the paved path if you want a bit more peaceful, less crowded walk!

i think i did the home wrong cause i didn't find a trail, only stairs. admittedly i didn't look hard either. it's a beautiful short hike down the stairs, harder getting back up. the view is beautiful.

Very quick trip down to the waterfall. The stairs were completely iced over, but would recommend sliding down for a faster descent!

Beautiful! The stairs to get down to the overlook were covered in snow and were slippery but there is an alternate trail to take that is well graded and safe.

The trail was very short but very fun. The waterfall is beautiful in the winter although there is no winter maintenance so if you do go in the winter just be careful where you step. I highly recommend going to see this waterfall.

Easy hike with a beautiful view of the falls. It’s a little crowded; however, I was there at peak foliage. I would not really call it a hiking trail, more of a scenic walk.

Not a hike at all, but the waterfall is gorgeous.
