Easy hike, nice view.

A short hike to reach the top of the falls. Great views with several small cascading falls. The covered bridge is super cute. We went in the winter and had the park to ourselves!

Even has picnic tables. We had lunch at one of the tables. The park was not busy - it was a Monday. We hiked up to the top of the falls - quite a climb - and took far too many photos. I think we picked a great time of year to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great views and open space to picnic or play, took the path up the falls, it's a nice "hike", the stairs make it easier. I was expecting something a little more grand as far as the falls go but it's still beautiful especially in fall with the leaves changing. It was a great stop.

We stopped by to see the little small covered bridge located here, but could not stay but a few minutes due to the bugs.. maybe it was because it was in the late afternoon or the time of year. I woud have enjoyed it more had the bugs not been so bad. Sorry I can't say more about the park,... More

Had a day to spare on our travels and visited the falls on recommendation. Unfortunately the falls were not up to much on this particular day due to lack of rain, but I would imagine they are pretty spectacular when in full flow!!! The leaves on the trees were just starting to turn which is always a lovely sight. Very... More

We went on a Saturday and did not have to pay an entry fee (talked about by other postings). It's a nice park like setting where people enjoy bringing their dogs. As it has been dry, the falls were a trickle compared to their late spring full width and power coming down the rocks. It's a good stopping point for... More

I would stay on the steep trail up to the top of the hike because you have many places to stop and view along the way

Visited in October and walked the stairway to the top to view the falls. Pristine grounds and a really well done stairway going up the side of the falls. It has lookouts for photo opportunities. Lots of people taking pictures and enjoying the beautiful day. I'd love to go back for a picnic in the park area. Fall foliage time... More
