The fall is only 100 feet from the parking lot and connected to several well paved trails . It is next to a factory and they have left some of the old sprockets where a water mill used to be.

These are small falls and fun to watch on a warm sunny day. Small park for kids to run around in. The river winds around the city of Hastings before it gets to this spot. Parking is close by.

Nice trail to the Falls. Short but worth it. Not a long walk from parking lot to the Falls but if you are unsteady on your feet, it may be a bit of a challenge.

We stopped by here on our way thru town and were super impressed! The falls were beautiful, though I wish there was a spot to get a "head on" view. We also really enjoyed walking over the tall bridge with the padlocks of love, and...More

Nice walking and bicycle trails. Has a small parking lot and is close to Nichols Inn. Has an underpass to go from one side of Vermilion Street to the other.

I'm not certain you can "get under the falls" anymore. My brother works at the mill and he said some of the trails have been closed due to safety. We stayed at the hotel across the street so we walker under the bridge to... More

If you don't have a car available Applebee's is across the street and you can walk under the bridge. We stayed at the hotel next to Applebee's and walked to the falls.

It used to be owned by ConAgra. I don't know if it still is but up until recently it was owned by them. I know it is still in use.
