Water levels are high and the fall is just beautiful. Off street parking and a short walk are truly worth the time to explore and experience this little piece of heaven.

This would be a great spot for a picnic if there was water. Currently with a dry season and lack of rain the falls are really not running.

Certainly a nice area to be in this time of year, the falls are small, but still relaxing to enjoy. Probably go if you're in the area, but I probably wouldn't say to take a long trip to see them.
