Easy trails to walk. 1 has elevation change and brings you to the bottom with hiking options. The other is a flat easy walk to a view from the top which is great for the elderly. One of my all time favorite waterfalls. Every summer I am here we try to see it. Senior National Park pass does get you... More

Take the hike, it's easy and so worth the trip, only about 1/4 mile. Beautiful falls and so close to town. We hiked on up to the aspen grove before turning around. Fairly steep.

The hike up to the Falls was not too bad, no borders on the steep side though and if you travel with small kids it might be dangerous if you don't keep an eye on them all the time. After you reach the falls, there are some photo opportunities but no benches to rest. You can decide to go on... More

With the snow melt, the fall and the river was running full, fast and cold. We saw a kayaker jump off the bridge into the mist below and was amazed that he survived to float down river.

You drive a few miles from town. You park and walk a few hundred yards along a concrete path to an overlook. You see a waterfall, take a few pictures and reverse the steps. Yes there are longer hikes to an upper falls, or to the base of the lower falls. But in the end it is just another waterfall.... More

A short walk to the overlook, a bit of a walk to the bridge below the falls, and several hikes to wear off lunch or earn dinner. This is one of the closest to town "don't miss" walks.

Visited this waterfall with a family member who had a knee injury. There was plenty of parking in the upper lot early in the morning. You do have to pay to park, but luckily my mother's senior access pass got us free parking. The walk to the overlook was an easy stroll along a well paved path. The waterfall is... More

Full falls in the spring, a good cool off in the summer and ice climbing for the experts in the winter. Great view points and nice picnic areas.
