We visited Middle Falls in October, right as the leaves were changing, which made for beautiful sights everywhere you looked. Middle Falls is fairly accessible if you have anyone in your party with mobility issues. You can take a paved path that looks down from above the falls or else a short walk to a level view of Middle Falls,... More

This is a very lovely park with scenic waterfalls and a nice visitors center.

This was a great state park- lots of trails from easy to challenging. It was pretty busy when we were there but there is plenty of room to spread out, especially if you go on the less traveled trails, which are beautiful. We were really glad we went.
