This is truly a sight to behold! The falls are amazing and there was still snow at the top when we visited. The trails through the woods are well marked and there are planty of safety warnings. Information boards are really informative as well.

What a gorgeous and easy to get to waterfall. The road in is well paved and the path to the lookout is easy to walk. A must see for sure.

Due to time constrains we drove up there, so did no trails. The falls are beautiful. Even higher then Niagara Falls.

Very impressive falls, still frozen around the edges where the spray has come back up and frozen around the sides.
