Beautiful falls

6 months ago

I definitely did not do the entire hike. I stopped at the overlook for my photos and walked in the trail for about a mile, then turned back. Was a beautiful area, but had a long day ahead, and thought it was the shorter of two trailheads.

Great waterfall!

We took the Mesa Scenic Byway and stopped at the falls. It was a 5$ entry fee. The parking lot leads to a beautiful old inn. The trails are not marked very well, but the trail is a loop. A few steps and you are down at the falls. Very pretty falls and canyon. Great little photo ops. The trail loops backs around and you are at the parking lot. There is a 2.5 roundtrip nature trail to take but we didn't have time.

Great boardwalk to take the kids on, and great views of the upper falls. This is worth the detour and stop to see.

great walk, easy for kids, take mosquito spray.

Wouldn't consider it a hike. It's more like something you drive up to and get a few pictures then go back home. Still beautiful though

Not really a “hike”, but absolutely beautiful!

Mesa Falls is a beautiful waterfall. Definitely worth the drive and the $5.00 entrance fee.

Definitely worth the effort to take the scenic byway and stop for a visit. The falls are incredible. I wouldn't call this hike at all. Very easy walk.

Worth the drive out to see it. Hardly a "hike" but an easy walk out to the boardwalk. Lots of mosquitoes, but the view is fantastic! My wife and toddlers and I were all amazed at the size of the falls and how close we could get. $5 entrance fee to park.

I'm glad we found this hidden treasure.

Was a lot of fun for the kids, easy walk, there are a lot of steps if you have a wheelchair or stroller to get down close to the falls. AND make sure you bring your mosquito repellent!

It is a nice place to vist the kids had a lot of fun

I've done this boardwalk hike at least a dozen times and it never gets old. This is one of the most spectacular waterfalls I've seen.
