This would be a great destination to visit with someone who likes the outdoors but might not be able to walk too far. There are a few stairs and a brief uphill, but the trail is very short, less than a quarter mile each way....More

If you love waterfalls but don’t really want to hike 5+ miles to get to one, this one is perfect! Less than a mile, easy hike but beautiful waterfall!

It’s so close to the airport and such a nice place to go after a flight to ground and connect to nature. It’s quiet with a lot of walking trails. If you have some time and like to walk around in nature (in the middle...More

The short walk is not too steep so many people can take the trail to these falls. The scenery is beautiful and not too public.

Only sought this place out after the awesome trip advisor reviews and I’m so, so glad we did! We accidentally took the long way there and spent roughly 25 minutes on a gravel road (crossing streams in my sports car haha). It was what I...More

It’s not huge. If you can walk the trail you could do it. The problem is the rocks covered in water are super slick. As a nurse I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. The water is swift. If you slip and hit your head it could be... More

We didn’t pay for parking or the trail but we went on a weekday. Not sure if weekends are different. There are literally only 5 parking spots.
