We stopped on a rainy afternoon and enjoyed hiking around the falls and picnic area. The magnitude of Mother Nature always thrills me.

We had an amazing time going to the various falls in the park. Beautiful and pristine and lots of fun for the teens. Most of the falls require a small hike but good for everyone ages 8-70.
