This is one of the most beautiful waterfalls I’ve ever seen. You could easily pass right by this place and if you’re not paying attention. This is a must stop especially if you’re passing through the area!

Has restricted access to the falls. Still a nice view from the Road. There is a nice parking area and path the walk to a viewing point.

This was a quick but beautiful stop. You can't hike to the bottom anymore (fenced off and signs warn that you are being recorded and will be fined). Its a beautiful view but disappointed that i couldn't experience them up-close like I had hoped.

"Techincally" now no, But everyone from 3 to 65 can be seen swinging a leg over and climbing on down. I haven't seen it being enforced at all. I'd say proceed at your own discretion. 😉

Douthat State Park is about the same distance. The park is responsible for the management of Falling Springs Falls.
