This is a very small state park. We went there specifically to photograph the falls. There are actually three falls side by side. Ice had formed vertically in places making our photos even better. The trail is shorter than what was stated on the map, perhaps 1/3 of a mile and the snow had been plowed making it an easy... More

Lovely falls, nice hike. Very glad for the visit. Nice easy hike. Caves to poke around in. Very quiet and peaceful on October. Could see it being crazy busy in the summer.

Some of the greatest views in the area, this park provides both easy and difficult hiking with some very rewarding views. Worth a visit.

This is one of our favorite places to visit. The hiking trails will give you different views of the falls and might just see a eagle or two.

This was an beautiful place and well worth the stop. We were there on a cloudy day and it was still very pretty. The sun came out before we left and that made this stop even better.

If you like waterfalls it's a good stop. You can take a fairly easy hike up to the falls and stand behind them. Not much else there--we used it as a time to stretch after driving a while.

Clean and beautiful, visited Labor Day weekend. Park was very busy and had to try three times to get in, Rangers were all very nice and helpful. Make sure to also drive up to the fisheries.

Read other reviews - was looking for something that someone who can't walk much was able to partake in. Saw from other reviews it was a short walk to the falls - very doable for someone who can't walk much! There were fun trails to take around caves and over the falls. Great park! Friendly people (visitors and staff) and... More

This is a great alternative to crowds at Hanging Lake. Pay $7 for your car, park, and you are right next to the waterfalls. We then went on the Bobcat Trail hike (about 2 miles?), pretty leisurely, not difficult, very green and lush. Just before the fish hatchery (which is not worth seeing), there are more gorgeous waterfalls. We had... More
