This is without question one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. It's actually kind of awe inspiring, especially the way the water thunders over those gigantic rocks. We went on a rainy day and that certainly made things a bit more challenging, but...More

Easy hike or walk around a beautiful gift of nature. Take a few minutes (or an hour) to walk this historic waterfall. As a plus, the gift shop and dining area is reasonably priced.

I've come here almost every year I choose May for my trip. Lots of water coming down. I've heard in the summer very little water so that's not so great. The plants would be in bloom where as in May they're not.

Although a bit expensive, 16$ per person, it is nice place to walk, with an interesting history. You should stop at the Boulder Cabin to look at the old pictures.

I don't believe it is handicap accesible. I would say it is moderate difficulty. Its not that it's a hard hike but there are a lot of stairs to climb, so if stairs are an issue it would be more difficult. There is a bus... More

Two hours and don't forget to take pics of covered bridge. We took lots of pics and I think still were done in 2 hours. Enjoy it.
