We followed the road to a small car park at the top of the falls, but found it difficult to get a good view. It seems the best views are from a small resort further downstream but we didn’t venture in there as it was...More

Very close to Highway 11, there is ample parking on both sides of the falls, but the Cedar Lane exit offers a bit more. Lovely swimming area at the base of the falls. Peaceful trails along the lower river from which to admire the falls....More

Someone told us this was a scenic waterfall but the best view is from across the water at the paid resort! There was an unmarked hiking path down to the water but it seemed slippery and unsafe. It was nice to see the oldest electricity...More
