This is more of a scenic stop then a hike, but I do suggest doing a little walking to see the falls from different angles. Well worth the stop.

Easy walk down to see the falls. Interesting story about the construction of the road thru this spot. Definitely worth a stop here.

This view of the waterfall is extremely impressive. Not hard to get to either, it’s situated right along the road. Have to take a few minutes and enjoy this majestic waterfall.

Arrived at 10am and it was definitely getting busy but still had parking spots available. Two huge tour buses had dropped off people but they all only went to the outlook. We walked past the outlook down the last 100 yards and the view was so much better! This is an easy stop, not time consuming, and the view was great! Paved all the way too. Easy for people with kids

Car pullout with small walking path overlooking the falls. Not really a trail, but a beautiful view!

Beautiful falls. Got to see a bald eagle come up the river and fly over the falls.

The fall is beautiful. Be sure to walk to the end of the trail to obtain a good visual angel to see the fall.

Won’t call it a hike, but great views from the overview locations 600’ and 1200’ down a sidewalk from the parking lot.

Super easy short walk along a paved walkway. Nice angle on the falls but not the best (base).

This is a small and VERY clear stream. The fish are few and far between but very very large! It's a lot of work for 1 fish or 2 but that fish may be a trophy!
