Such a great spot for sledding! You can ride up to two people in a sled, so my 3-year-old was able to ride with her father. My 10-year old also had a blast. They have a fire to warm your feet. They also sell gloves...More

Great view of partially frozen falls. Steps were shoveled for visitors to enjoy the falls. I actually left my sunglasses behind by mistake only to return an hour later and find them right where I left them.

The park is beautiful year round. Hiking down to the falls can get a bit challenging due to ice freezing on the stairs. Worth a visit.

Came here to see the falls with the trees turning colors. It was nice, but not much to write home about. Looked like some nice trails to hike on. I could see why weddings take place here.
