You want to make sure you check out this waterfall. It is easy to get to and the trail is not difficult. This is a beautiful waterfall to visit and photograph. In the spring and summer the vegetation and full of rhododendron in bloom.

They need to offer throw up bags for the road. The Air is thin, cool and crisp. So beautiful there. I didn't want to leave

The falls are a short walk from the road through shade trees which makes it very enjoyable. We lingered in the shade and admired the flowing waters in this peaceful setting.

A Fairly short trail that takes little effort to traverse. Cool trees and foliage to look out along the way. Falls at the end are worth the walk and a great picture opportunity.

The drive up the mountain tto see the area's many warerfalls was lovely and quite exciting as you drive close to the edge of the mountain. The waterfall is beautiful. We would certainly see the falls on a return trip.

The walk to the falls is short enough I'd not call it a hike - less than a mile, on a fairly wet and very root-filled path (watch your footing!). The end of the path requires care to get to the base of the quite...More
