Beautiful area, river and falls worth seeing. It’s not much of a hike except when going off trail to get to the waters edge (requires minimal climbing on the upper Falls trail to the water).
Be prepared for stair steps- there are about 150 on the upper Falls trail and similar on the lower.

The upper falls trail is spectacular. The waterfalls as well as the rock formations. Beautiful place

Worth the walk down the hill and across the water. The view is much better than up by the parking lot.

Nice falls and good view from upper falls. Difficult to see from lower fall view point. There's quite a few stairs on lower trail.

I gave this 5 stars because it is mainly accessible in some areas for everyone, even the handicap, trails are everywhere. There is many places that you can go down and see the falls, they have places to stop and take it in everywhere, and if you can still manage to get around good you can see both the upper and lower falls which are both worth checking out :D!
