If you stop at the Sandstone visitor center, they'll tell you about some overlooks to get pictures of the falls. Don't waste your time with that, make the drive all the way around (it's a long drive on a very narrow road---you want to do this visit in bright daylight hours). The drive is way out of the way, but... More

We went way out of the way to discover this gem. I've never seen such a beautiful falls!You will have to hike out to the Falls to experience it. Once we reached it we couldn't believe the beauty and vastness. I've never been to Alaska but this is what I imagine it to look like.

I came across information while researching things to see on our way to Maine and found this. Wasn't real sure if we would like it, but man, it was worth the drive to get to it. It seems a lot of people fish right by the falls. Road gets narrow getting to it but had no problems at all. I'm... More

This was a beautiful and pleasant experience. We only went to see the falls. We did not fish, swim, etc. the hike was easy and was accessible. The parking lot needs to be paved. The road to and from the park is very narrow, but drivers were courteous. Please drive safely. A bonus was seeing the large amount of water... More

These are simply beautiful water falls and the park built to enjoy them is well done. Impressive boardwalks guide you to various overlooks making it very easy to reach and see some wonderful scenery. The sounds, smells and scenery are well worth the drive. Now getting here can be an experience. We went from the Sandstone visitors center to Hinton,... More

Sandstone is one of my favorite parks. The whole area is alive with majestic beauty and the falls are a particularly amazing natural phenomenon. If you're up for some hiking, you can climb to the top area of the falls and look down at the water rushing over. It is a breathtaking experience.

I had the place to myself - 25 degrees, sun shining. The views and fresh air were spectacular. My only complaint was to Google Maps for taking me in down Irish Hill Rd. It is not paved, treacherous at best!

We visited in January just prior to the snowfall. The views of the falls were great and the boardwalk a nice walk out over the river and on the islands.

A great setting on the New river .. Don't be fooled when you first get there because the first side of it is not the deal . You have to take the little hike through the woods to get to the bigger side ... Not a very high fall but still pretty impressive !!!
