Beautiful spot. Short, moderately difficult hike due to rocky path. Our teens and 7 yr old were able to do it no problem. Watch where you step. Our 7 yr old found a copperhead curled up next to a rock down by the water.

The place was a hike down but wasn’t that great of a fall. People were there swimming and that did look fun.

Wow doesn't state how my hike went. The trail is kept up very well. The indigenous fauna is remarkable. The bridges across the creek don't detract from the scenery. The falls and cascades were amazing. A must for hiking of in the area.

We’re actually buying a home right down the road from here, so one very hot day we got curious. I’m glad we did, because we discovered there is a beautiful waterfall. There is on outlook at the top and if you’re really motivated - there’s...More

We happened upon the site after a local guide mentioned it to us at the tourist office. The place is easy to get to and has ample parking and a nice picnic area with restrooms. The actual trail to the falls is relatively close but...More

Foster Falls is known for good climbing. It also doesn't hurt that you pass by a waterfall and swimming hole on the way to the crag. The hike to the overlook from the parking lot is not strenuous at all, but the hike down to...More

The walk wasn't far to see the falls but it was a steep walk down. The waterfall is alright, it's more of a place to go to swim. I've sees better waterfall but it's a fun swimming hole.

If you are talking from the parking lot at the top of the falls to the bottom of the falls, very short, maybe a half mile, if that...mostly straight down and rocky. There is additional hiking around the rim and at the... More
