It's a very beautiful place and it's easy getting up and down the waterfall. Almost anyone at any age can climb the waterfall and if you can't climb it then there are stairs you can use.

These falls are a lot of fun and easy to climb. There is a stairway / trail which goes down the the bottom of the falls, and then you literally climb up them. Most of the way up it is more like climbing up small...More
