It is a short hike to the falls which are beautiful. However, if you want something more challenging, there are more difficult trails you can take.

Beautiful scenery. Rough trail, hiking stick is recommended for walking impaired visitors. We didn't make it to the lake beyond, but definitely hope to on our next trip.
