You do not have to hike to see the falls as there is an easy access concrete sidewalk. We had no difficulty finding the falls, and enjoyed traipsing around finding different views. Since there was a huge bicycle race going on, we were unable to use some of the park paths. Our main reason was to see the falls, and we were on a limited time schedule. I'm sure we would have enjoyed exploring the whole park had it not been for the races and our time frame.
