Enjoyed the trail, it took us much less time than what others estimated but we equated it to the black flies attacking us. The trail was secluded otherwise.

Have you ever found a place where you just want to sit, breathe and meditate? A place where you can feel Mother Nature's healing energies? No? Then put this on your list of must do's. You won't be sorry.

This is an excellent place to get a nice walk in by the rolling stream and wilderness combined then end it with a nice quiet, peaceful view of the falls.

We took the shorter way there and longer back along the river. the falls are not big but it was a nice easy hike to get some exercise and enjoy the scenery.

It is an easy walk and best done leisurely. I think that 1.5 hrs. is plenty of time, and allows for stops and taking time to enjoy the falls and other sites along the way.
