“Worth the Hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2011

This was a beautiful waterfall at the end of 161 stairs there is a platform over the river so you can stand right in front of the fall and get a great view.

“nice falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2011

We went here with my 74 year old father. A relatively short hike. The stairs are a bit much at first but really not all that bad. Nice view of the falls

Lovely scenery. Short hike to see falls. Well worth it. I've gone several times.

“Awesome falls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2011

The Falls are great and compared to most others in the area very easy to get to. While there are a lot of steps you can get from the parking lot to the falls in just a few seconds. We have been to the falls both in the spring and fall, it is much more impressive in the Spring when their is more volume to the water.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2011

This waterfall is amazing! The only strenuous part about seeing this waterfall was climbing the 161 stairs. But other than that it was easy to get to! Plus once you get to the waterfall you will forget all about the stair climbing... This waterfall is truly beautiful.
