The best time to go to the falls is when the water level is not at its...More

Any time of year, it is worth the trip. Super busy during weekends in the fall, spring and summer. Spectacular in its own right in the winter. Picnics, history, hiking, just watching the falls... a great place. Don't forget to take note of the "high...More
