Off the road gem

Worth the $5pp admission. Keep an eye out for jutting rocks/roots. Easy hike. Visited late Sept when it was lush green and Nov, late fall...both were stunning.

I love this hike. I've hiked it several times. It's short enough and not terribly difficult. The waterfall is absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend this place!

A special spot and a nice trip with small children. An easy, short, pretty hike with a huge payoff at end. We brought a picnic on a pleasant fall day.

My husband and I hiked up to the falls with our twins. The fall colors on the hike were beautiful and the trail was well maintained.

You pay $5 per person to get in, this help maintains the grounds. And the grounds are nicely taken care of and the stones that you climb up must have taken some to place them. It is well worth the trip and it is an easy walk. Probably 15 minutes with a bit of a clim up.

Visited Pearson Falls at 3:30 in the afternoon when traffic was starting to slow down. The hike up to the falls was very pretty. I could hear the water but it took some time to get to it. Once reading the falls, there are benches to sit and enjoy the sound and sight. The leaves are starting to fall and... More

I am always looking for new trails to hike and places to visit in the area. I found this place and decided to pay it a visit. It is quite easy to get to and has a modest $5 entry fee and the nice thing is that they also take credit cards. Upon entering the parking lot is right there... More

Really enjoyed our visit here. Very well maintained trail to the waterfall. Very neat bridge before you get to the large waterfall. The group that maintains this area do an excellent job.
