Beautiful falls. Easy hike down a lot of steps but still easy on us senior citizens. Wear shoes that can get wet. Safety railings are rustic logs that enhance the walk. Need to pay a $3 area user fee for National Forest but it is good in other locations that same day, we got our money's worth.

My three girls (9, 7, and 4) had fun and didn't complain about the walk, so you know it isn't very long. Lots of steps, so not stroller friendly, but even our little one could walk the short .2 mile walk.

We swung through here on a tip from a Wildcat employee on a whim and were so glad we did! We were early in the season (May) so parking wasn't much of an issue but the lot is small and likely packed in the peak months, so try to get there early on in the day if you want to... More

Beware of the steps. I counted 140. We were not prepared for the amount of steps. But- the falls are absolutely worth it. Gorgeous and mystical. The path is also a little muddy.

Very pretty spot. Parking is very tight. Not for anyone with walking difficulty. Pay attention to your kids - have been there when creeps are also paying attention to creeps too.

The parking lot is on the opposite side of the road from Ellis River Falls (aka Glen Ellis Falls). Access to the .3 mile trail to the falls is through a pedestrian tunnel under the street. The well-travelled trail parallels the river and includes 155+/- stone steps down to the base of the falls. After the final turn in the... More

Well worth the short hike in, we cooled off from the mist as the water cascaded down the falls. Be carful as the trail is somewhat slippery from the mist, hold onto the handrails provided. The kids enjoyed as much as we did.

The way to the falls can be slippery if wet but is definitely worth it. It's better to have suitable shoes for the walk, though. The falls are very beautiful and - depending on how much rain was recently - can also be quite full with water, so it's advisable to wear something waterproof. The path to the falls can... More

Easy hike and so beautiful. Go early so it is quiet. So worth it! Will absolutely go there again. One of my favorite places to hike and take pictures
