This walk is easy and can be done in flip flops. The waterfall is beautiful with it's mossy rock face. It is pretty tall and so quick to access.

These Falls are on a paved road and paved trail that are super accessible. There were several kids groups that were there. This is a great nature opportunity for anyone that may want to be close to nature but has mobility issues.

We found these falls by accident and what a great accident it was. The falls are just beautiful - simple but beautiful. The only complaint are the number of tourists getting in the way of taking pictures.
