Took a short wintery walk up to the amazingly partly frozen falls. What an amazing view and a great reward after less than a mile effort. Went on a Sunday afternoon on an unlikely warm day in February. It was so much fun to see...More

The falls can be viewed either from the observation area on the north side of the stream or by walking up the 3/4 mile gorge trail.

Visited the park one morning to take the walk to the falls. It was certainly worth the trip very easy walking path and lots to see. The park itself looks like a nice place to hang out.

We visited the park on a Saturday afternoon. The walk through the gorge is about a mile but is a very scenic walk along the creek to the beautiful tall Falls. There is also a beautiful park area across the street that borders the lake...More

No problems at all! A tiny bit muddy in some areas but the roads are all clear. Perfect time to go because of the extra water!
