The waterfalls was really nice. Just a short walk from the visitor center at Pipestone, it was reached by a paved path. Lots of shade trees to get under from the heat and we loved our time there.

This beautiful waterfall is about midpoint in a 3/4 mile walk at Pipestone National Monument. The stone formations are impressive - so are the twisted trees and prairie grasses. The mist coming off the falls are refreshing. It is a very tranquil and inspiring spot.

This was such a surprise on a short circular nature walk!!! Gorgeous. Worth walking to. You go from tall grass prairie to the mountains almost. Loved it.

Beautiful waterfall amid the Pipestone formations. The stream moves fast and it is a nice walk along side it.

These falls are encountered along the Circle Trail at Pipestone National Monument. If it's a hot day, you can get some relief on the footbridge at the base of the falls. The breeze will carry the spray your way.

The waterfall is beautiful and peaceful. The museum was informative and they had some local people demonstrating how to make peace pipes.

We were walking along the circle trail on a Sunday evening. No crowds and you could hear the sound of water in the distance. The falls appear suddenly as you round a bend on the trail. Beautiful and peaceful. You can see them from the...More

The falls is very nice. Not as impressive as some of the great National Park waterfalls, but this one has a relaxing sound.
