Great views of many falls if you can hike it. Only one was accessible, that I recall. Many, many staircases, most of which were just recently redone, were nice. There is one caveat. I'm only 5 ft 3 inches tall on a good day, not terribly short, but not tall. The stairs, even the old ones are built with the first step that is meant for an 8 ft tall person. Most came up to my mid calf and a few almost to my kneecap! For the life of me, I've never seen anything like it. One I had to kneel and pivot to get it up it without a step stool! The park is hard enough with the hills the way it is, why make it harder? Please add a few more steps for the vertically challenged people of the world!

We were given a map with information about the park that was helpful. The grounds were lovely, the roadway through the park was wide and a fun drive, and the trails were fairly wide also. There are guides explaining the rock formations, and interesting facts about the park and local area. There are nice little spots for pictures too.

Really enjoyed the scenery in late October. It was our first visit but will be sure to return. Mostly checked out the overlooks but did view the fall from the cave trail.

We really enjoyed this park. There is a 7$ gate fee for Indiana residence, and 9$ for non resident. NBD, most state parks have entrance fees. The rugged hikes were not really rugged at all, lots of stairs, but the views worth the steps. Cant wait to come back in the spring when the waterfalls are flowing better.

We love Clifty Falls. Beautiful hiking with some challenging trails. Our middle school and high school kids loved it. We stayed at the Inn and loved to atmosphere. Hard to get a reservation but worth it.
