We got a group of 10 together to go spend the day. we got there early, and was able to get good parking (this place fills up on warm days). All the trails are marked. Most of the trails have rails and steps, it is not designed for the advanced hiker, but great for the photographers in us. We did... More

This was a beautiful site to see. I did find it slightly odd to have to pay to go on a nature hike, but I suppose it was worth the cost. The falls were spectacular. I did not like that you were only permitted to stay on designated trails rather than explore the park and scenery on your own, but... More

Beautiful park with lots to see. Be careful on the wooden bridge pathway. One of the railings came on in my hand. Just like anything you must remain alert.

We were advised to go on a week day. Monday turned out to still have a lot of people anyway. We spent a couple of hours on the red trail and saw a nice amount of falls. Ticket price was $13.50. You can see lots of waterfalls in the area that are free and not have the crowds.

Beautiful but a bit of a tourist trap, for those who want to hike but want the work already done (step built, etc). Good for young kids if you hold their hand. Not cheap but a nice day trip.

The falls are nice - I wouldn't call it hiking - more like walking up and down stairs along a path. $13.50 seemed kinda high as everything else is an add on. The 13.50 should cover all. - mini golf / maze / paddle boats and fall. went spent about an hour or so.

Beautiful scenery, we visited in June, would love to see this place in the Fall when the trees are in full color.

The calls itself is very beautiful. The 13.50 per person is a bit steep of a charge. You can either take a 15 min hike up to a 2 hour hike. I feel it more of a tourist trap because it costs to do everything. You can do a maze for 8 dollars.

We live in Florida- the land of flatness, where waterfalls are non existent unless they are man made. This place gave us the opportunity to enjoy many beautiful waterfalls. We did the red trail (hardest) which I would not recommend to someone who is obese or with knee or hip problems as there are many steps to climb up and... More

We wanted to take a break from our drive to Connecticut by seeing these waterfalls. I thought we could walk one of the shorter trails, take some photos, and then get back on the road. However, the place was packed, and a theme park atmosphere pervaded. When we discovered that a hefty charge of $13.00 for each visitor was required,... More
