Great little day trip for the family. Trails are flat and well packed on the upper part of the system. The trail to the river below the falls are extreme. Switchbacks, steep grades, wet rocks, poison ivy, and narrow trails make hiking difficult. Wear good...More

Reminds me of a place I use to go with my soul mate/husband of 26 yrs. What a beautiful place. It's a must see. You can spend 20 minutes or 2 hrs. You can observe the falls from a manicured path or try your luck...More

The falls trail was easy to navigate and view the falls. However, a full view of the falls is partially obscured by trees this time of year. You can also walk to the area above the falls and see the view at the top. To...More

Hello, The trail has a couple of wheel chair friendly overlooks of the falls. The trail is not paved, but is a fairly fine crushed stone that should not impact your trip
