It is still a beautiful spot to visit. We went in July 2017. However, yes they have put up a new higher fence around the area and picnic tables. There are signs EVERYWHERE that there are to be NO GOING PAST THE FENCE AT ALL!...More

Thank you for your review and warning to our visitors.

This is a must see right beside the highway. There is a pull off to park and walk the two or three hundred feet up the path to the best view.

This is a fun site to see. You can view it from the road or choose to ignore the trespassing warnings and barricades and climb down. Either way, an amazing vista.

One of the best spots to spend an afternoon. Pure water and amazing views, however the Park Rangers come every 30 minutes to charge people who go past the fence to enjoy it. The fine is $50 and is a Class 3 misdemeanor.

Thanks you for mentioning that. Trespassers beyond the fencing will receive a summons.

I am a sucker for waterfalls and this was a great one. I deleted one star because it is now technically illegal to hike around the falls. Falling springs creek is absolutely beautiful at the top of the falls.

Nice view, easy to stop by the side of the road and see it. A sign shows where the waterfall used to be located before it was moved and diminished by a mining company. Can't you believe it?

Not a Niagra Falls, but it is still a beautiful waterfall to visit. You can reach it easly from Covington. And there is a parking are with good photo vista.

Great view from highway overlook but better if you ignore no trespassing signs like the dozens of kids swimming there and see it close up. The trail is both slipper and rocky. Not for the out of shape.

"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. 😉

Douthat State Park is about the same distance. The park is responsible for the management of Falling Springs Falls.
