After a day of driving, we wanted to stretch our legs. This is an easy hike until the end and then you have to scramble over some rocks.

Recommended to us by a local and a nice change of pace from typical touristy things. It’s only about a 20-25 minute walk/hike into the Falls. It’s not a hard walk but would be a little bit of a push with a stroller. It’s fairly...More

Hiked in with my spouse along a fairly easy trail as long as you pay attention to where you place your feet. The trickling stream parallels the trail and when you reach the falls after about a kilometre and half hike the falls are spectacular....More

This was a great hike to start our day with! Beautiful scenery, flowing water all the way in, until the final climb up to the big falls! Stunning views. The bugs weren’t horrible either. We had sprayed bug spray before entering the trail as it...More
