This fall is located in Pipestone National Monument park. It is simply beautiful! I found myself sitting on one of the benches to "be in the moment" and just enjoy the surroundings. The beauty and sound brought serenity to the moment. I also liked the ability to walk the stairs up to the top of the falls too and enjoy... More

Love seeing the falls in the winter. The ice formations are spectacular and the changing seasons make for interesting photos

Walk up and around to see the explorers signatures carved in wood. This is a path past the rock formations and up steps.

Connected to a little creek within the Pipestone National Monument park. It's a peaceful place to be on a nice summer day. There is a paved path that takes you directly to it after walking through/by the beautiful Sioux quartzite rock alignments and prairies. Keep in mind this is within the national park so anyone over 16 is $7.

Our family has visited 10+ times over the last 20 years, and the falls has always had plenty of water. The paved trail is reasonably level, and leads to a bridge at the bottom to view the falls, so is accessible by wheelchair. A stairway leads to the top of the falls, but the rock formations and the fish can... More

I happen to like waterfalls. This one is not spectacular like Niagara, or Yellowstone or Yosemite but you can get around, above, and near it to explore different photo opportunities.

We came for a short visit and loved the falls. We enjoyed watching the fish jumping out of the water at the falls and listening to the babbling of the water as we walked the trail.

Beautiful place to visit. Very easy to get to on the asphalt trail and amazing how so much water keeps coming down the falls. It's not something that you would expect in the middle of rolling farmland and prairie.

I love waterfalls and this one was no exception. Located in Pipestone National Monument. $3/person or use a National Park Pass.

We had visited the monument frequently but never walked to the falls before. They are very peaceful and beautiful.
