This was a beautiful water fall. Locals say it's best immediately following a rain fall and we listened to their advise. Loved climbing on the rocks and enjoying the view. The hike out was a little tough on some of the older members of our group and is not handicap accessible.

Beautiful spot with gorgeous views of waterfall. Just a few minutes east of Ely. Fairly easy hike to the falls on well maintained trail. The walk was beautiful with many interesting trees--some growing right over top of/out of boulders. We took a light picnic lunch to eat--enjoyed while sitting on bench that overlooks the falls.

We took the 8/10 mile hike to the falls. The fallen trees from the recent storm have all been removed from the trail. We enjoyed the short hike over a path with some uneven terrain of roots, rocks, and little hills. It you have a walking stick it will be useful. The path is clearly marked along the way and the falls were spectacular with tannin colored water crashing down over the granite rock. This was a nice break from other stuff during our Ely visit.

There is a short (1/2 mile) but rocky/root covered path to hike to these falls (you can't get a stroller down there, and you really have to watch your step!). The falls are very nice and there are several spots to view from. If the water isn't running too fast, there are also some rocks to climb around on towards the top of the falls,and good crawdad spotting at the bottom of the falls.

Easy trail, not more than .75 miles total if you walk around to the dam, great photo opportunities. Not wheel chair friendly.
