HikingGreat!

Crowded trail full of switchbacks but worth it to see the falls from the top and hear the roar of the water!

Great view points but crowded by the throngs that drove from point to point. Walked west to east in the afternoon so the view down canyon was great. The view back towards the falls was a bit hazy but that’s what the morning is for.

Easy walk down to the edge of the falls along a paved path. If you get tired on the way back up there are a few benches along the way.

Plan the hike. We did the north rim. From the upper falls parking you can walk down to the upper falls, then back to the parking lot for crystal falls and lower falls. ~2.5 miles and 1.5 hours.

Open on 8/26. Pretty steep switchbacks, but with good shoes and some water is no problem! They have a lot of benches for resting in case you need a break. Getting to the bottom and hearing / seeing Lower Falls up close was an amazing experience!

Nine switchbacks! It’s easy if you’re prepared. Make sure you wear the right shoes.

Going down to the viewing point is easy and worth the (what I thought) kinda difficult walk back up. Very steep. But there are points of the path that you can take a break and rest. And the view is amazing.
