Oldie but Goodie

I had such a great time on this hike and while it was pretty crowded I found that the people were nice and respectful. Altogether a great hike and very well maintained by the camp.

Nice Little Hike

Great hike. The total distance from the parking lot (where there are bathrooms) is 3.4 miles

Very Nice

It was a nice spot to go to. I went in the month of 12/31/17 and thought it was a nice drive to get there as well. You’ll cross over 3 little creeks and get to the fall. It’s a short walk. Round trip 2 hrs or so. It’s on a campsite, so at this time of year it’s closed, so you can bring your dog.

Great Walk

We hit this on a Sunday morning in November. It was about 45 degrees and and leaves had fallen. We had the trail to ourselves. It was a nice gentle hike at first ending in a few steep climbs but nothing some 50 yr olds couldn't handle. The falls were beautiful and we were able to photograph the sun rising in the apex of the falls. Overall a great beginner hike.

Nice Quiet Hike

This is not a very long hike but it provides some wonderful scenery. The leaves in the fall are beautiful and the waterfall is wonderful. Sat beside it for almost an hour and just enjoyed the sound of the water crashing down. Not very crowded.
