Rocky Gorge and Falls Pond are both really nice. The gorge is usally a bit crowded while the pond is not. A trip around the pond doesn't take long and it's worth it for some nice pictures.

By the roadside, plenty of parking and rest room facilities. A short stroll gives you a full view of the gorge, many people walk out on the rocks and sit by the small cascades. This is a really pretty area just to sit and watch...More
