Great hike, not difficult, although there may be some rocks to walk around. The only problem we had was a tree had fallen across the path right before we reached the waterfall. The kids climbed over the tree but the older folks waited. The waterfall...More

They need to offer throw up bags for the road. The Air is thin, cool and crisp. So beautiful there. I didn't want to leave

These were beautiful, lovely hike and drive. Just be careful of downed trees. One was overturned and only way to continue on path was to walk on the over turned root part path being only 6in wide and one slip you fall

The falls are a short walk from the road through shade trees which makes it very enjoyable. We lingered in the shade and admired the flowing waters in this peaceful setting.

A Fairly short trail that takes little effort to traverse. Cool trees and foliage to look out along the way. Falls at the end are worth the walk and a great picture opportunity.

The drive up the mountain tto see the area's many warerfalls was lovely and quite exciting as you drive close to the edge of the mountain. The waterfall is beautiful. We would certainly see the falls on a return trip.

The walk to the falls is short enough I'd not call it a hike - less than a mile, on a fairly wet and very root-filled path (watch your footing!). The end of the path requires care to get to the base of the quite...More

The trail has lots of roots and steps and is very narrow. It's great if you're on foot but if you have someone in a three wheel trike don't do it. The falls is beautiful and the trail isn't too steep.

Artisan Jewelers was very interesting, in a unique building. The falls and area around them are beautiful, well worth the hike.
