The falls are breathtaking! The walk to get there is no more than 1.5 miles and it’s a very easy hike. Be sure to check out the overlook just a mile up the road for a different view! Highly recommend!

This place is gorgeous and I highly recommend it. We stopped in between visiting some of the other waterfalls and hiking in the area.

You can get to the falls by a short easy walk though there are other longer trails. We ended up seeing it from an overlook spot near a visitors center first. The view was awesome though sort of wish we would have walked to it...More

At 215 feet, this cascade is three stories taller than Niagara Falls. That makes it the tallest single drop waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains. You can pay $8 to enter the park and get the view from the bottom, or you can do like...More

The park is easily walkable. There is parking both at the upper falls overlook, and down by the lake when you walk to the falls from below. The walking paths are wide, level and have a packed gravel surface. Sounds like you... More
