I visited during the off-season, and even though it was chilly there was absolutely no one around (though I heard in the summer it can be very busy, especially with children). The falls are a very short drive from the main town, and are right off a small road, with a VERY short trail to the water. There is the... More

This is a great place to go take in the beauty of the outdoors without having to do too much strenuous exercise. Quick to get to and really pretty.

We liked the falls even though they were low because of the lack of rain. There are three levels of the falls. All beautiful. I would go again.

These were nice fall despite the water being low due to little rain. The water was very clear. I can see these being chilly to swim in.

Nice easy short hike. Falls are beautiful. Pay attention when driving to buttermilk falls as it comes up quickly. It was too cold to swim there when I went, but you can swim in a couple of the water holes. Nice easy walk. Takes about and 1 to 2 hours depending on how long you look at the falls. There... More

Had a great picnic between the two falls. The scenery is beautiful and the sound of the falls is quite peaceful. Easy to reach with a nice swimming hole/jumping platform from a big flat rock next to the falls!

This views were great, but the water was ice cold! We visited in July and could barely enter the water! So not for the faint of heart! There were plenty of kids who were swimming, but only for brief moments.

We only went in the middle fall water, and even with a beautiful mid 80s Sunny day, the water was brutally cold! Must take a dip and very refreshing but scary cold at first. The larger fall is bigger with many more families and a rock to jump from. The falls are just a few steps away from the road
