There is water access for folks wanting to swim and nice pathways through the forest to see more waterfalls. Some of the pathways are difficult and on rooted trails.

We are not sure we actually all the trails. The views of the falls were amazing though. Kids loves rock hoping and great place for pictures. Definitely a great place to cool off and unwind a bit.

Stopped off to have a break. Lovely spot, with benches and tables. A short walk (with steps) to see a lovely waterfall from a wooden footbridge. Didn’t venture further but the path leads on.

Accessible for children - a wooden bridge and good stairs to get to a viewpoint. A trail through the woods.

We stopped at this rest area on a whim because we had been traveling quite a while. What a beautiful location... Very nice rest area facilities, and a beautiful little pathway up to the falls. Families were cooling off on the 85 degree day in...More

Not sure but there’s no staff there policing the area. I don’t recall seeing any signs one way or the other and I’ve been several times. I’d keep the dog on leash on weekends or when it’s crowded as much for the dogs sake.
