Reviews

I arrived at 746am and did the 3 mile loop. I only saw about 10 people and had the falls all to myself

This was a great little hike and very accesible for dogs! I went on a Saturday and it was pretty crowded; nonetheless I enjoyed the hike. Expect your shoes to definitely get wet! :) also, I would rate it as a beginners hike not so much of an intermediate hike.

Awesome hike, there are many other trails at the park so check them out too! Pretty rough terrain in some areas.
