This park is in the village of Naples and can be a quick stop or a longer one if you choose. It is absolutely beautiful in the fall. The waterfall and stream is very calming to watch. You don't have to do any major hiking if you don't choose to.

Grimes Glen is a great place to go hiking with your family if you want to get out of the house. They have a great swimming pit with a nice waterfall. It is a great family place to visit!!

Nice for short hikes. Has a swimming hole up at the top of the trail. Dogs allowed on leash. Picnic tables at the beginning of trail.

Happened to catch the sign for Grimes Glen on Main St in the middle of Naples. About 1/4 mile up a side street you turn right into a small parking lot. You walk over a bridge and start on a trail which eventually gets trick so you're better off just walking along the rocky creek bed. First waterfall is only... More

This is a small gorge off the beaten path, but it is very beautiful. There is a trail for a short while, but most of the walk is on the rocks through the gorge. Footing can be slippery so shoes with good traction are a must. The falls are very beautiful. The walk is not far, just slow because of... More

We were staying in Naples on vacation and just happened to stumble across this place. The path only goes part of the way then you have to cross the creek to get to the falls. I would recommend wearing water shoes. There are two separate falls both of which are beautiful. Be careful by the second falls. We did encounter... More

Relaxing walk through stream, nice set of waterfalls. Not to busy. Must be able to walk through water. Trail is not complete throughout to waterfalls. Limited parking !!

Not as large - or as crowded - as Watkins Glen, but fun, well maintained and beautiful. Plan to get your feet wet, even in a very dry June when we visited. There is a trail at first, but it disappears just short of the first waterfall. After that, just get in the creek and enjoy it. Most visitors focus... More

Parking lot is horrible...very few spots and two different cars decided to take up double the spots. We walked the path to the falls...you will need water shoes because you need to walk in the creek to get to the falls. The only reason I didn't give this a higher review is because there were no trash cans and a... More

We walked a creek bed to two separate waterfalls. The second waterfalls had a shallow water hole to escape into.....The water was so cold an completely refreshing!
