Staying on 209 and drove by. Googled a little info on the site and decided to give it a shot. Nice safe walking trails. Kids of all ages we enjoying the grounds. There are a lot of stairs but, amazingly easy. Even for someone with a bum knee. Well worth the $14.50 admission. You can see they put the $$... More

These falls are "privately owned" and there is a fee to hike to see them. This is outrageous! Especially when the signs are brown, indicating to us that it is a government facility. Log cabins around the entrance make this a tourist trap. Very disappointed!

The day we visited it was raining, but we still enjoyed hiking the entire "Red Trail". The rain kept the crowd down to almost zero. The craftsmanship of the stairs and boardwalks is high quality and makes it easy to see all the wonderful waterfalls.

Everywhere you go, nature is there! Forests, National Park, Wildlife. Loved it! Going back that way later this summer. I stayed in East Stroudsburg during this trip. I'm doing the same this summer.

Better stretch before you hit these trails! Tons of narrow wooden stairs. We did the yellow "popular route" and that was plenty - had to take a couple breaks on the stairs as there are a lot of them. I guess if you do the whole thing there are over 2,000 stairs so be ready for the leg workout! Beautiful... More

I absolutely loved it here. We went in mid-April and decided to do the red trail, which is marked for avid hikers only, but allows you to see all 8 falls! I wouldn't call us avid, but this hike wasn't hard at all and it was well worth the extra walking to see these amazing waterfalls. It is well worth... More

Beautiful and safe walk besides the water surrounded by a nice forest. Many good spots to take photos and relax. Highly recommend for couples and families.

I love this place. I don;t mind paying to get in. You can see what you pay for while walking around. Great catwalks to walk-on. I love it here. It is the closest I feel to being back in Cali.

Its good for a days picnic with family. But see there is fee fir trail entrance, which otherwise most of the parks provide for free. You might see a waterfall depending on season you arrive. Tip: Wear sports shoe as have to walk a lot There multiple stairs to walk, so definitely not wheel chair friendly Also if you have... More
