Mingo Falls is definitely worth the time to visit. Beautiful! A free experience! The big tree that has fallen across the trail was a little difficult to crawl under.

Love the hike to the falls, and the waterfull, the leaves were falling but still had alot of their beautiful color left. cons, for those that have physical limations with walking espically up hills this may not be the best hike for you . there is many steps to climb up .But it is well worth the hike up, when we were there, the falls was beautiful.

The shortest walk with the biggest payoff! If you're looking to do some real hiking then do so elsewhere before or after this. But don't skip it... it's a beautiful 180' cascade, a huge waterfall.
