Plenty of hiking. Trails easy and well marked. You can hike for as long as you like. Beautiful stone bridges, big falls and little falls. Main park has pond in summer and picnic tables.

The family and I have had picnics here, went for walks, and had a great time exploring the falls. If you want to see the waterfall only, take note there is a quick access way but the "stairway" that is kind of natural in nature...More

We parked at the Waterfall parking and took a short walk to see the waterfall. We took some pictures and went on our way. I love visiting waterfalls, so this was a nice one to add to the collection.

If you don't want to spend too much money and want to have wonder full time with your family then this is the place. Not much crowded Water falls is good and kids can play since the pond is not depth at all

The trails are very well marked, and the foliage is beautiful. The Little Falls are lovely, and will make it to the Big Falls next!

We have hiked to Wadsworth Falls several times. I'm guessing its a little over a mile each way over gently rolling terrain. Its more of an incline on the way there but nothing crazy. The trail itself is pretty wide and nicely maintained. Almost anyone,...More

Website says $9 but every time I went there was no one taking money. That's at the swim and picnic area. Bigger falls no fee. Park and go for it
