This is one of our favorite falls in the area. We enjoyed hiking to see all the falls. The trails are in good condition?

We spent half a day hiking all of the way around this river area. Some of the terrain was tough, but we had some younger kids that made it through. It is amazing to see the power of a river at work.

Wonderful waterfalls. You can fish, picnic, camp, hang out at the beach and collect rocks. Very relaxing. The suspension bridge is cool.
