This was pretty. I got a great 360 shot since no one else was there. at the viewing area. We were there before the trees bloomed, I bet its even nicer in season.

We brought a loaf of bread but couldn’t find any fish. The visitors center was closed. Beautiful area but beware it closes early in the fall! Very disappointing to find a beautiful fall day and it is in the 60’s and sunny 😎

I wish you could stop go inside, but it was still awesome to stand at the top of the day. It's a short stop on the way to many other hiking/outdoor attractions.

There are no natural rocky waterfalls right at the dam. There is a dam overflow that looks somewhat like a waterfall.
