This natural area is a wonderful place to check out! Beautiful and interesting! One day I want to go back when I have time to make my way down the trails to the actual tub areas.

When I pulled into the parking lot there was trash everywhere with vandalized park signs but don't let that stop you from exploring the trails and falls. Just be careful a lot of step banks that are slippery and a fall could easily take you over the edge and into the stream. With that said the natural beauty of the... More

My review seems a lot different then the other reviews. My girlfriend loves waterfalls so I wanted to try this place. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. We found a little waterfalls but did a lot of walking to find them. We found what we think might have been the tubs, same thing--they were interesting but it seemed like a lot... More

Honestly, there is really nothing much here of my interest, and I love hiking and nature walks. When you first get to the bridge over the falls, you can of course see the falls. If you're a little daring like myself, you can walk up the hilly mountain to see the tubs. I highly recommend wearing hiking boots, because when... More

The trail was about 2.5 miles. There were lots of waterfalls. We followed the blue trail all the way until we were almost to the end then we ended up taking a yellow trail for like the last 5 minutes. We ended up doing the loop which if I ever go back again we won’t be doing. There wasn’t much... More

Seven tubs is a really nice part of the area. We struggled to find it at first, as it isn't well signposted. The wild swimming and waterfalls was really fun. I would recommend some wet-suit boots, which we didn't have, but still managed. Was something a bit different to do rather than just walk. As we were not local to... More

The "Tubs" are deep, natural, whirling cylinders carved out of rock by eons of glacial meltwater cascading one into the next. I grew up within walking distance of the Tubs and hiked or hopped trains up to the area with my boyhood companions about once each week. ("Walking distance" back in those energetic days was a lot farther than today's... More

I regularly hike the seven tubs which is a nice hike that isn't terribly tough but still gives you a good workout and a relief from the world. Only problem is, people ruin it's beauty by leaving their trash and graffiting the place. It's a gorgeous natural area but unfortunately people can't take care of nice things.

Beautiful waterfalls and well marked trails highlight this county park. Formed by Glacial Streams through thousands of years, the park features the rolling streams that have swirled through the sandstone, creating crevices and "tubs" or pools. Though signage states swimming is verboten, that doesn't stop the locals from splashing around in these crystal clear pools and using the moss covered... More

Just a few steps from the parking lot takes you to a. Ridge that overlooks the beautiful pools and falls. If you hike up along the edge you get to see even more. Not the best place if you want a long hike - but unique and lovely
