We visited on 11/01/17. The Fall foliage was still pretty. We did not go to the bottom of the falls, but the overlook was beautiful. Not a bad hike at all for two, out of shape 50 year olds.

The place is a bit hard to find but well worth it. It is a 39-45 walk to the falls down a trail and up the river. Bring river shoes unless your feet are made of steel. Verdict= highly recommend.

The average person can get to the falls in 45-60 minutes but it will take longer to get back traveling up hill.
