A real off-the-beaten-path place that is great. You get to see great forest space and the waterfall. It's an easy walk to the falls but can be slippery if it has been raining. Great place to take a picnic lunch.

Fun natural area with a pretty waterfall. Steep drops around falls requires attention with small kids. Beautiful hike to the bottom of the falls.

Stopped based on the great trip advisor reviews. They didn't fail us, this a gorgeous natural area. We were a bit sad our pets weren't with us, but after seeing the cliffs, I'm kinda glad they weren't. We keep them leashed, but still a scary...More

This was a nice hike. We took our small dog. He didn't have any trouble. The trail was a little confusing because it splits close to the beginning and it isn't obvious which way you should go. You can go either way. You can walk...More

Hiking trails surround the gorge so bring your hiking shoes and a walking stick. The waterfall is about 60' high and you can follow the trails and walk under the falls. An exciting and memorable experience. Also remember it's easier going down than going back...More
