Great beginner level hike, easy trail, good reward at the end with beautiful waterfall and river. Can be crowded at times, but nice escape.

The short hike takes about 15-20 mins and is only moderately strenuous on the way back. The falls are definitely beautiful and there seemed to be some spots for swimming and wading, however it was too cold to do this when we went. The entrance...More
