Overall – This is well worth a visit. You can spend anywhere from a half day to several days here.
Hint #1 – It seems impossible to get a trail map ahead of time, but you can get one at the gift shop for just a buck.
Hint #2 – Check with the staff to find out about the trail difficulties. We were going to go on one trail, but after hearing a first-hand description, we realized it was too difficult for us. It didn’t seem like the trail maps accurately describe the trail difficulty.
Hint #3 – Pack a lunch and consider a BBQ. There are quite a few grills in the area and a very nice pavilion on the road that runs along the river.
Trails – There are quite a few trails with varying lengths and difficulties. The short ones near the gift shop are paved or very smooth and as you get further away they are more likely to be dirt paths. It is really hard to get lost.
Falls – The falls were pretty impressive. You don’t see falls this large in the area.
Hint #4 – If you like taking photos, there are many good locations to shoot from. The falls are close to the parking lot, so if you don’t want to lug your camera on the trails, it is a short walk back to the car.
Our experience – we were there on a weekday afternoon in late September. There crowds were very small. Once we left the main area round the falls, we rarely ran across other hikers on the trails.
The facilities were very good. The bathrooms were large, flush and had A/C. There is a small snack bar, a decent sized gift shop and a visitors center that never seemed to be staffed.
