Nice trails and good spots along them to swim in the summer. Our dogs love it! Decent beach area for a picnic or bring a beach chair and a book while the kids and dog play in the water.

I wasn't expecting them to be so beautiful. We went a couple days ago. Me walked on the lower side first, I literally screamed when we arrived at the bridge. It felt like I was transformed into some magical movie. Amazing. I took so many pics that my phone was dead by the time we reached the top. Amazing and... More

This place is visited by us from various entrances (3). Great for hikes and amazing water views of falls. Picnic tables. The camping is good. Flush toilets at the main park in the summer. Be careful of your valuables. If you need to store them in the trunk, stop somewhere else to do that in private.

This is a great side trip complete with suspension bridge if you walk the whole trail (about 10 km). Otherwise, a small detour in the car before heading to the Falls gets a view of thebridge

Beautiful Walking Trails lead you through the park. Lots of hills and dales to work your heart. The river is beautiful with very refreshing swimming in the lower pools in the summer. Expect cold water!

After having seen the spawning run of salmon at another place, we were hoping to see here salmon too - unfortunately we were not lucky. Nevertheless we really enjoyed this spot with its very narrow waterfall very much.

Is very easy to get to . Short hiking trails by the river are well groomed and marked . Upper falls are very inpressive but lower falls are now blocked from view by large boulder which is wedged between rocks on both sdes of the lower falls . Still offers some photographic opportunities however.as the scenery is quite beautiful.

What a beautiful place to visit, we took our time and strolled around. I managed to get some lovely pictures. We ended up on the river bank above the falls and just soaked in the serenity and glorious beauty that is nature.
