We've traveled to the North Shore 5 - 10 times a year for more than 20 years. This is a great stop as they've constructed the nicest State Park building for visitors. The falls are a gradual hike. Dragonflies populate the area at the base...More

Nice visitor's center with helpful employees. Ample parking available. Free. Trail to Cascade Falls had a couple slippery rough areas due to recent rain. Hiking boots and hiking stick needed. Distance is less than a mile.
