“Lovely Falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We had a nice walk to Dry Falls, nice sturdy steps, fairly easy. Since there had been lots of recent rain, the falls was full and forceful. You can get close-up and walk behind the falls although the spray might get you damp. It is a great falls!

“Must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Awesome waterfall that allows visitors to actually walk behind the fall. Easy to get to on the stairs and path to the fall. Beautiful and scenic. Lots of photo ops here.

“Rain helped the falls not be dry.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

It was a short walk from the parking lot to the falls. You could walk behind the falls which was awesome. They were really roaring because of all the rain.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

This falls is off the road, and quite a climb down to see it, but unless you are using a walker, it is worth the climb back up. You will actually walk under the falls and stay mostly dry. They have improved the path under the falls, and now there is a thick layer of gravel to keep you feet dry. The gorge cut out by the river is just beautiful, so take a camera.
