Great Falls and Hike
Nice place to visit all year round. Take the trail at the end of the parking lot to the top of the falls. The trail continues up past the falls along the river approximately 9 miles. Great views along the trail and small campsites spaced out along the trail. In the summer bring your bathing suit. You can swim in the base of the falls or go about .05 miles past the falls up the road there is a spot called Baby Falls. It has cliff jumping and you can slide right off the falls. There is a pit toilet at the Baby Falls camping area and numerous picnic tables. Throughout the seasons you can catch kayakers negotiating the currents and boulders. Bring a picnic and make a day out of it. You will be glad you did
