Beautiful falls, nice trails, rocks to climb on and a great visitor center. This state park is definitely worth a visit. Is also handicapped accessible.

The falls after which the park is named are beautiful, and the pools below them are great for a wade, but beware as my son picked up a leech. The rest of the park is pretty, but no moreso than any of the rest of...More
