I swear it was impossible to get a good rundown of how to approach this place, after reading reviews and such, it just wasn't clear. Here's the rundown: if you want to see the falls, you need to park at the "Minekill Falls Overlook" which is closer to Shew Hollow Rd. The other entrance, which is the main entrance, is where you do all the camping and end up at the longer trails. If you just want to see the falls right away, the Overlook parking is where you need to be, and is not where the GPS led me to. Thankfully I saw a sign for it and turned in rather than listen to the GPS. From the overlook parking area you walk a small bit and see the falls from the top. If you want to see the falls from the bottom, which is a really nice experience, you walk only about 10 minutes down a path which is clearly marked for you to follow. The area is worth taking a picnic in or sitting down and having a nice relaxation. If I could I'd build a house down there as it seems so closed off the rest of the world but still pretty and wide and open. Like entering a hidden valley.

The hike to the waterfalls from the parking lot is quite short, with a wide and flat path. The waterfalls are beautiful. There is not a lot of shade and swimming is not allowed; so keep that in mind on hot days. It was quiet when we arrived around 2pm on a Saturday; but by 3pm it was really busy. The viewing platform at the top is nice; but the trees block a lot of the view down. Great for a quick trip.

This fall is a bit hard to see. From the parking area, there is a short trail to a viewing platform, but the waterfall is at an angle, so we decided to hike down to get closer. The hike wasn't too long and the falls were more dramatic from the bottom. The walls of the cliffs are a great sight as well.

We saw the falls from the top then hiked to the bottom for more views. Muddy, steep trail but even we two seniors could do it. This state park is the one to visit.
