This is a short walk from the parking lot. Best after a rain and the spring thaw. Close to other regional attractions.

Nice short hike to the bottom of the falls. It was a little icy at the top apparently and there was a ranger there warning people off. The trail is mostly smooth until you get to the base of the falls then it requires climbing...More
