I was looking for things to see in the area, while on a day trip and I just love waterfalls. So when I saw there was a waterfalls we just had to stop and visit before making our way home. Little did we know at the time there was a long way and a short way to the falls, Lol. So we made the big hike right after lunch and just before sunset. Needless to say we burned off a few calories by the time we reached the falls. Just as we arrived at the falls, the park rangers asked if we made the hike because the park closed at dusk in about 45 minutes. We had no idea that there was a parking lot right next to the falls. So rule of thumb make sure if you are up for the hike, bring good walking shoes, a bottle of water, a use the facilities before you start out on your journey. Or if not have your GPS bring you to the closer parking lot. Lol

Simply a beautiful location with multiple trails, and plenty of beauty. The full loop is a little hilly, but we saw plenty of families with small kids able to make it all the way around with little difficulty. The waterfalls are of course the best sites to be seen, and if one wants to skip the hiking altogether, the best or biggest falls is adjacent to a parking lot. We chose to start at the opposite end of the park and work our way to the big Falls. The Little Falls are just as breathtaking but in a much more subtle way, and far more peaceful as they were no spectators at this site when we walked by. Would highly recommend

The park overall was ok. The waterfall was ok. The signage for the park is poorly done and we got lost.

This park is a scenic overlook and trail hiking destination only. There is no swimming, no alcohol, no picnicking or actual barbecuing allowed. The parking lot is often full and the residential area does not allow illegal parking on the streets or in the local church.

Over crowded. No parking. Garbage on the ground and in the river. People urinate and defecate in the woods around the falls. This park is designed as a stop over place to view the falls, fish and perhaps take some pictures. It’s not intended for picnicking and swimming. What once was a beautiful place is now a shameful garbage dump.
