An incredible walk along the city streets to be captivated by the historic walk way to High Fall. The walkway provides a scenery gives way to a beautiful water fall. Nature in its splendor.

Great free walking spot. At night there are light displays at different times of the year. I visited during the day on a walk. Great view.

We visited this area from the Platt Street Bridge. Wonderful views and good photo opportunities from there We visited the museum and also went to the brewery across the bridge. A fun way to spend an hour or so.
