This is truly a spectacular swimming spot. Water is cool and refreshing, lots of spots to splay out a towel and hang around. Plenty of hiking and biking too if that's your thing. I found this place a bit difficult to get to though - there are numerous access points and some are more convenient than others. I entered by... More

Stayed here for a few nights. Kids loved having camp fires and toasting marshmallows! Site was very roomy and toilets were the usual type!! Remember the mossy spray!! The falls are great and the water is very fresh!!!

It was an easy relaxing hike with the right attire . The fall is so powerful and beautiful you knew you were getting close because of the sound. When you finally get to the falls when you look to the left, it is the falls just disappearing into a fairly small opening and the right is the river that seems... More

We had a nice picnic in a beautiful shaded area. A pleasant walk through the trees and a beautiful view from the bridge. It was a hot day, but on this walk we did not notice the heat. The falls were beautiful. Go find it! You won't be disappointed.

We started out by having our picnic lunch in there picnic area. Lots of room, picnic tables in a covered area. Water faucet near by which was convenient. The trails were clearly marked. Walked to the upper falls and lower falls. Beautiful!

A beautiful walk through the trees and around the falls. Would suggest a person wear good walking sandals or running shoes for the walk, as the ground is uneven and rocky in spots. For anyone who has difficulty walking distance or uphill, would recommend that they not do the full walk as they may experience difficulties. Very peaceful and enjoyed... More

Wonderful little stop- only took us about 45 minutes (including standing in awe time) to do the entire loop. If you are not a hiker, you can simply take the 5 minute path to the falls. If you are a moderate hiker it is an easy hike to do the loop with a slight incline on the return. The falls... More

If you like straight waterfalls it was nice. But if you like cascades, which are more interesting, then this one is not for you. Also you cant see much of the falls or the river from the trail. There are other waterfalls in the area that are nicer.

We did the circuit over two bridges through beautiful native forested trails and enjoyed our walk immensely. It's cool under the canopy and suggest carrying an extra layer for warmth. The waterfalls are wonderful. Brave souls were swimming in the frigid waters on the cool day we visited...but they didn't stay in long! highest recommendations
