The falls are pleasant but the fence around them is ugly and detracts from the experience. I suppose Hydro is worried about lawsuits, but something could be done to make this a better attraction.

You travel down on dirt road for a short distance but the falls are definitely worth the effort! Be ready to see the occasional moose running by ready to great you!

This falls is a spillway and it's ok but there are so many real falls to visit nearby. At the time we visited the falls there was a lot of water but it could also be shut down depending on the weather.

The falls is controlled by the hydroelectric dam nearby. The day we visited there was no water flowing down the falls. Had there been an advisory sign we would not have driven the three miles down a dirt road to see nothing.

I love these waterfalls. The fence around it is a bit of a downer but the falls are beautiful and you can hike around them. :D Definitely nice to see.

The falls were excellent and a trip down the south trail to the next set of falls was a workout for two 49 year olds. The middle of the hike was a little hard due to the climb on rock out cropping's. Great photo opportunities and we saw a grouse in the middle of the hike.
