A wonderful hike. Beautiful waterfall, a nice suspension bridge to see the falls from different angles, hikes around small lakes. Beautiful old trees. Would highly recommend this park and hike.

Not a hard hike...very pleasant and the waterfalls were lovely. Plenty of rest stops. We were there on a rainy day and it was still pleasant.

Nice trails through forest with lots of manificent trees. Great suspension bridge with viewing platform. The falls are pretty impressive. Better than I was expecting. Good car park with interpretive centre and toilets etc

Beautiful forest and falls and can easily be done with young kids. The trails are well signed ad the hike is not too strenuous.

Trails are easy to walk, very clean and well kept. Some families even had strollers. Well worth the a visit. You don’t have to pay to get in which we thought we would have to.

Yes, on leash. A lot of dogs are scared of the suspension bridge, so be aware that you may not be able to get Fido over to the other side.
