The waterfall is absolutely beautiful. The hike to it was misrepresented in the online description that we read. It is more than a 30 minute hike. It took us 55 minutes each way. There are two places where you have to walk through shallow creeks or try to navigate your balance on small rocks in the creek. Plan to get your feet wet. The hike was more strenuous than we expected based upon the information we read online. I would not recommend this for families with young children. Teenagers would be fine here. Be very careful when driving through the park. The speed limit is 25 mph, but is not clearly posted except right at the entrance. They need more signs to remind drivers of the speed limit.

Hike was so worth the effort - waterfall takes your breath away when you first reach the top! Fall foliage was spectacular in mid-October.

Lots of areas to hike and few different parts of the waterfalls brooks and streams. We saw people of all ages sizes and shapes along the trails and they all seemed to be enjoying it as much as we did. Definitely should be on your to do list.

Hiked to Rainbow Falls with our 5 and 7 year old for their first ever hike. Good age for this hike and the waterfall was beautiful.
