This is an easy hike. The falls were beautiful. There were many wildflowers on the trail along with ripening blackberries. Took an hour or two. A $10 Daypass is required to visit.

GO EARLY. By 10am, the very large parking lot had just 2 spaces left on a rainy Saturday. I can’t imagine how full the parking lot would be if it the weather was better. When I left the park at 2:30pm, people were overflow parked...More

We hiked up to the lower falls and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There were quite a few people on the trail, but everyone was polite. The trails are clean and it's easy to stay on course. The falls are gorgeous.

There seems to be space large enough for an RV. (but i'm not sure about staying overnight) On the weekend in good weather get there early in order to get a parking space. Good luck!
