The hike is a little more challenging than it appears - especially for those not accustomed to the altitude. But the climb is well worth it! At the top of the trail, the stream cascades over rocks and appears to spurt out the mountain at...More

We enjoyed this more than seven falls. There was some nice trails and other parts of the park to hike and picnic if you like and the falls are actually natural which to me is more amazing
