“Beautiful Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

On the advice of a staff member at Lucas Vineyards, I visited the falls and was really impressed! There had been some heavy rains recently which made the falls more dramatic. There is a trail that meanders on the upper part of the gorge which provides closer views of the falls. There is also a lower trail which appeared to go even closer to the falls although it was closed due to unsafe conditions (ie. slippery trails). Next time I am in the region, I will come prepared for a longer hike. Well worth a visit - especially if you've been driving for awhile.

“I was married here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

i love this park it has so much to offer. You can hike trails, camp, plan events, hang out in the play ground, go to concerts in the park for free in the summer, bike ride here or simply have a picnic. I was even married here at the overlook and would never trade this for anything the waterfall behind us and the natural beauty of the Gorge was somethng most people only dream about.

Beautiful scenery and great hiking trails. The waterfalls are magnificent. There are many wonderful views of the lake from the trails.

“Beautiful views with multiple vistas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We visited both the look-out at the top of the falls and hiked the trail to get to the bottom. Although it was a chilly day, we loved the beautiful views. The trail along the bottom is fairly flat and easy to walk. My 4-year old son was able to manage it with no problem. The falls from the bottom give off a mist, which makes it very cold if it's a chilly day. The waterfall always looks different depending on how much rain or snow melt there has been recently. There is a great playground that kids will enjoy.
