If you get the chance to take upper and lower shots, you will not regret it. At the lower falls, drive through the parking lot and park near the end. Do not fall into the trap I did and grab the first spot. Plenty of parking in September.

Lower Falls is amazing, but it's better depending on which viewpoint you choose. Preferably, you should go to all of them. The hike down to the brink of the falls is skippable if short on time, you want to be facing them of course. The overcrowded Uncle Tom's Point, despite being closest, is not actually the best view. Instead try the hike down from Lookout Point for a gorgeous view of Lower Falls, or Artist Point to take in both the falls and the canyon in a spectacular vista. But if you can see all the viewpoints - do it!

This is great to see in the summer months, But if you can stop in in Winter That is when it is at it's best, The Ice build up is simply amazing, this is the first time checking it out in the summer, last 5 times was in the winter, Still vary cool to see,

The trail to the brink of the falls is very steep with switch backs, but it is so worth the hike!!! There are plenty of places to rest at the end of each switch back. (take treking poles or hiking sticks) The photo opportunity is great at the end. You can also get great views of these falls at various pull-outs as you drive along the road and you can also walk down Uncle Tom's Trail to get a closer view.

Great views of the falls and the canyon. A must see. Fun to just stand and watch and listen to the falls.
