The paved path to the bottom of the lower falls is easy and short but the falls themselves are so dramatic this year that it's virtually impossible to actually see them from the bridge at the base of the falls. You'll get soaked, as we...More

It was a short walk to take the loop to get a closer look. Well worth it as then you could view the stream and listen to the sound of the falls. We were there early Sep and it was still flowing.

We enjoyed these waterfalls verymuch as they are quite central and beautiful to see. We are giving one point less simply because we loved the bridalveil falls more, but these waterfalls are also really stunning!

All the water with one place to go. Amazing show at the moment. All the surrounding greenery is truly breathtaking. Makes for a wonderful stroll to get to it.

The lower falls is a short walk to the viewing area. He should have no problem with that. I think you have to hike to the top of the falls for the "upper," which would be too much. Park your car and take advantage of the... More
