Great bang for your buck! A quick 10 minute hike along a fairly even and mostly paved trail gets you to these falls. The only downside is that because it is an easy hike, the falls can be crowded.

This is a very nice place to get away from everything. A nice short walk and some people actually went in the water. There are a lot of steps, but easy for most people to get to. The parking fee was $5.00.

The hike down to the falls is easy, although there are some rock steps. The walk down is approximately 10 minutes. It is worth the walk because the view is amazing.
