We were here in early Oct. on a fairly sunny late morning. The long drive in on the gravel roads was full of color and thankfully lacking in any traffic. The hike to the falls was very pleasant. We had our boots and hiking sticks which were very helpful on the steep parts. It was a relatively short hike with very enjoyable views at the end. Some wooden steps in a couple sections were a great assistance to this out-of-shape senior citizen!. Would love to see it raging in the spring!
