I visited Yahoo Falls a couple years ago with the love of my life, it's a decent hike up and down the stairs, but completely worth the journey. One of the most romantic moments of my life, perched on the huge slab of stone holding...More

We visited in late April 2018. Still enough water to be pretty impressive. But don't expect huge powerful flows, especially mid summer. Still worth the hike. We travel on motorcycles. Last time I was here was maybe three years ago and the 1 1/2 mile...More

I like visiting the tallest waterfalls, heighest points etc. in different states so this was a must see for us. It is best to visit after rains but the trails will be muddy.

I visited with my daughter and three grandchildren ages 5 and 6. There were public bathrooms located at the beginning of the trail which were fairly clean and sufficiently equipped. We choose the arch trail because it was about the distance we thought the children...More
