So sad we drove all the way there from the city and it’s closed! We were there last year and it was fabulous. It’s closed because storms ruined the boardwalks to it. Don’t waste your time like us!

Great, easy stop to see a nice water fall. The first half of the trail is boardwalk to see the falls. There is a climb to the stop that's not paved.

One of the best rivers to canoe on as a group. We always have a lot of fun. Easy to get going and wrap up.

A great place to go if you are up for a short walk. Bring a camera. Nice paths to walk on. Some stairs if you are up for it. Wheelchair accessible.

Yes, this would be a short, easy hike for the kids. The hike is all on a boardwalk, so nobody will get lost. You get to the first waterfall almost right away, so there’s not a long wait before you see something. You... More
