This is a very tall yet still easy hike. Great opportunity to come year-round. The view from the top is very nice.
We were looking for a quick day get-away and this was just what the doctor ordered. The trail is very navigable for people of all ages, as well as being dog friendly, on leash of course. Having just gone yesterday, the falls were partially frozen, which was so interesting to look at and we even had the pleasure of watching... More
This trail was very pretty. It's a short walk - a little over 3 miles. There are a lot of falls and it is very peaceful. We started at the bottom and went up and then came back down, which I think was the best way to go. Either way, it's beautiful and worth a couple hours.

The falls weren't THAT impressive -- but the view from the top is worth it. The hike up was quite a good workout. Busy trail with lots of people coming and going. Plan 2-3 hours to hike up, enjoy the view, take some pics and hike back down. Paved portion (wheelchair access) to lower part of the falls. Bathrooms were... More
