My husband & I have wanted to go here for quite a while since hearing about it, I think through AAA. It was not busy the day we went but I can see it could get very busy on a hot summer weekend or fall day. We did not walk to the top of the falls, it's very strenuous for... More

Pros: Large open grassy areas, beautiful falls, good hiking trail Cons: Didn't notice washroom facilities, could be more parking for the popularity of the park Arriving at the park near the beginning of September sure sounds to have paid off. I have glanced at a few other reviews of the park and many have made the comment about the parking... More

This is one of our favorite state parks -- a small but attractive park. At the bottom of the falls is a large area for playing frisbee or touch football or softball. Picnic tables are nicely spaced around the area, and toilet facilities are available. There is a walk-thru covered bridge which is great as a photo site. (By the... More

A series of small water falls for a total drop of 250 feet over a quarter of a mile. The quantity of water is not large, but the falls are beautiful and one can walk right up to them.

It's a good place to hike with small children, not too strenuous and long. I plan use the available grills and make a day of it on my next visit.

Beautiful setting in the hills. Wonderful open areas as well. Scenery is breathtaking and the trails are great. Nice way to spend a sunny late spring afternoon .

My wife and I were quite impressed by the breadth and depth of this beautiful waterfall. We hiked to the top and took many pictures from the various look out points. I don't think the hike is good for young children as it can be steep and arduous, and I highly recommend that adults wear sneakers. My wife and I... More

I've been coming here for years. It's great in the warmer months for picnic or kite flying. My daughter loves running around and splashing in the pool of water at the base of the falls

A short hike to very beautiful waterfalls. You can see them from the road. You can also walk up the trails to the top of the mountain if you are interested in more. We went at the end of November and it was still worth it.
