We parked just before being able to see the falls at a spot provided for parking and picnicking. It was an easy short walk to a flat wooden walkway overlooking the falls. Even my 90 year old mom could have made it over to see...More

Take a ride in the country and be amazed at this water fall. Alot of things to see in the area but this can be so peaceful and quiet. We have been in both warm and cold weather, the ice forms can be amazing.

With an easy access parking area & walking trail, Falling Springs Waterfall is a must, especially if you're on your way to Omni HomeStead HotSprings Resort!

Worth the trip along some windy roads! There is easy parking on the north side of the falls. There was no one there when we went. You CANNOT enter the falls. Strictly a great view from an overlook.

Didn’t realize how massive this falls was until I saw it in person. Unfortunately you’re not allowed to climb down anymore and there are reports of people getting trespassing tickets by the local PD so be aware of this, although IMO seeing it from the...More

You would not expect such a beautiful waterfall as you are driving west up 220 heading to Hot Springs, but this is a photo op stop you want to make. The falls are on the left as you head up the road, and just after...More

"Techincally" now no, But everyone from 3 to 65 can be seen swinging a leg over and climbing on down. I haven't seen it being enforced at all. I'd say proceed at your own discretion. 😉
