It is a very peaceful and enjoyable experience. The waterfall is a combination of smaller waterfalls. It is not one huge, roaring waterfall. It is more like gentle waterfalls that connect as you go up the mountain. It is a great hike. The paths can...More

This is a nice one-day side trip, with the falls and town as the main attraction here. Note that with multiple entry/exit points to the falls, be sure to explore the side trails. All of them lead back to town and allow you to escape...More

This is a gorgeous place to visit. Take some peanuts for the well-fed squirrels. Enjoy the forest setting and be sure to walk to the top for the best views.

The waterfall was beautiful. Wear the appropriate gear as you will be going on a short uphill hike to view the different levels.of the waterfall. It was 5 fr. Per person and definitely worth it.
