“A bit of a work out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014

Beautiful and easy access from town. Hike itself wasn't very difficult but the elevation made this a bit challenging even for 2, 30-year-olds used to living at sea level. We took frequent scenic breaks, drank lots of water, and made the trip in under 3 hours. Make sure you hike all the way to the base of the waterfall for the best view. Was a bit crowded early in the morning.

“Great hike and fabulous views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

This is a nice hike for anyone, not too steep and when you get to the falls it is fabulous. Rained the day we went and even had a bit of sleet.

“Well worth the hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

The fall is a little ways out of town, you can see them from town. When you are near then they look much larger and the sound they make is purely magical.

“Popular and deservedly so”

Uphill hike to stunning waterfall. Passed countless families and couples going up and back down. Did it twice in the same trip I liked it so much.
