This is an easy (barring the detours) 45 min. drive from QC, and the falls were conveniently located right off the highway. It has ample parking and a welcoming visitor center where you purchase your ticket. At first you are greeted with some cute sculptures of very large local wildlife which is fun for the children.
The falls are approached on three levels. It is indeed spectacular on each. However, we found that the highest viewpoints were the best. Down on the lowest level was indeed beautiful but didn't compare to what we had seen going down. I would say that wouldn't be a big deal other than it does take some effort (we are pretty fit boomers) to get down there as there are a LOT of steps going down (and of course going back up). They were not difficult, just numerous. There are signs warning you of this. Therefore, if you have any condition that would forbid such an endeavor then you would want to pass on that part of the falls. Even if you are capable and would find the steps simply a chore, I wouldn't bother simply because the views are not that spectacular from below.
We spent several hours there and it was well worth the trip, money, and time. Enjoy!
