We did not have time to hike the entire trail, but we stop for the falls. Well worth it! It is crowded so go early.

This park was vey nice. Lots of green space to lounge on. Sandy beach area and some beach volleyball nets. Small heritage village to look at and read about the history. Great views. But it does get busy here.
