“Jaw-dropping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

We visited at the perfect time of year for the falls to be thundering with lots of snow melt and spring rains. We got soaked, even at the furthest observation deck! The half mile walk to the falls is very do-able as it is a paved pathway. Prepare for a Niagara Falls-like soaking! Bring a rain jacket, a hat, and if you are a photographer, lots of lens cloths!

The Falls were ROARING! What an incredible sight! It's awesome to be close to the falls and feel the mist!

“Great hike on pavement”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

This is a moderate 1/2 mile hike to a pretty nice water fall. The going is smooth with steps at the end.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We pulled into the parking lot, thought we were in the wrong place, pulled out only to see the Canadian border and then went back into the lot!
It was a crisp morning and very few people were there, which was nice. The trail is handicap accessible, but it would be quite a work-out. The boardwalk goes uphill in many, many places. The views from the look-outs, up the stairs, was fantastic. It is fun to imagine what the falls would look like in the spring and it would be so loud.
There are little side trails that lead to the river which are very nice.
Nice bathrooms.
