I have difficulty walking so it was slow going up some of the steeper sections of paved path but ABSOLUTELY worth the effort. The path follows a beautiful mountain stream to a stunning waterfall.

They tell you easy walk. But fairly strenuous for a senior. However once you get there, it is definitely worth the effort. Just don't forget your camera

Tip: Take ADA trail and a very level trail to 175 steps down to see falls. This is unmarked parking lot above the lower trail parking lot. View is worth the walk.

This was a wonderful experience! We got here early to beat the crowds and heat and it was such a great hike. The falls are gorgeous and there's several places to sit and just take it all in, once you get to the top.

Cost $3 per person to enter US Forest property, but this is such an easy 1/2 mile paved (uphill) walk into nature, creeks and waterfalls. So breathe taking! 1 hour stop to nature's wonders

Dogs are allowed but must be on a leash. Be sure that flea and tick medication is current. My dogs loved it.

Diane, I don't think you'd be able to make it all the way up. But would suggest calling to confirm if there is a handicap accessible path...

You have to pay to enter the State park. I think it was $8.00
