Beautiful waterfall and an easy, short walk to get there! The road to get there is steep and narrow, but it's worth it and not too bad.

Road could be the reason not to go. Better than a Jeep Trail, but not much. Not saying a 2wd mini van or suv could not make it on a dry day, but recommend a 4WD and a dry day. Road is very steep &...More

Huge waterfall that runs most of the year. Particularly spectacular after a recent rain. Easy, flat walk of less than 1/4 mile to the fall base. Parking is often wet and limited but close. The road in is gravel, well maintained but incredibly steep. Many...More

I've had a friend who made it down to the falls in her mini van with no problems, but when we went, it had rained a couple days prior. The road most of the way down was a dry, packed down dirt road we had...More

The short hike was easy, perfect for small children. The waterfalls (2) were beautiful, even though there had not been any rain for awhile. The road in was a little rough, but you do not need four-wheel drive. Parking is adequate. The grandkids (age 6...More

My daughter and I love waterfalls. The drive takes a while if you do not live near the area but once you get there, the hike is super short and the falls are great! This was one of my favorites. Must go after a rain...More

This place is beautiful!!! The problem is the road. You really need a 4 wheel drive to get up and down the gravel road. The gravel Road is terrible but other than that the falls are magnificent

I'll preface this by saying I always found it absurd that anyone would rate a natural feature a one. However, this one "earned" it. We heard great things, and decided we needed to see it. We have an AWD SUV, as prior reviews recommended, so...More

I have only been once and we were in a subaru outback but did not do anything special other than rest the brakes at a place that reminds you to. The rocks are pretty big in the road. I heard they may have the road closed to... More

Swimming above the falls carries the risk of being carried over them. You can splash around under the falls where there is a pool. There is swimming, kayaking, and canoeing in the nearby Buffalo River.

You really should leave by dark. there is a parking lot at the trail head. Ranger will check it at dark as there is no overnight parking allowed.
