They are not huge or spectacular, but they`ve a special charm. When I visited them, the path was closed caused flood 2 day before. But also from the footbridges or bridge, you can admire in all their beauty. Parking right next to them.

Many steps to reach this area. Overall not overly impressed with the falls. The area is beautiful however. There are many people there enjoying the water. It is a moderately strenuous hike with the stairs.

Lovely views from the riverbed at these falls. Worth the short hike down to the water's edge. Some steep steps at the end; may. It be suitable for small children. 25-30minute hike in each direction from Little Canyon falls ramp

This is a great little hike and a beautiful area, however...please use caution if you decide to jump off and in the water. Seems too many out of towners don't know if you don't land just so, that you are probably going to bust a...More

At the lower end maybe six feet at the one down stream but up at the big falls the jumping is forbidden as the rangers have stressed in their presentation. Depths of the water are very hard to read and go over safely on the... More
