The falls can get a little busy during the weekend, but the trail up to the Dome can be steep and a little treacherous after rain, so not as many people venture up. Unfortunately, road access to this site is closed on both sides due...More

The trail to the falls was easy walking dirt path. The trail to St. Peter's dome was only fit for a billy goat. Rocky, roots and stones to trip you. About half way are two rocky almost impassible steep climbs. The view from the top...More
