Great hike

Great morning hike down the hill to the falls. Only disappointment was there was a lot of trash on the ground

Okay

Really beautiful, the only bad thing was there were soooo many people. The hike back from the falls was all uphill and surely a work out so be prepared!

Frozen

Went here by fluke when traveling home from Minnesota to Chicago. Dead of winter -6° outside. Best experience ever, winter needs to be added to this. As cold as it was, beautifully marked trails, a rushing (yet frozen) waterfall, streaming rivers, and a community of other hikers, snowshoers, & sightseers that was well worth the layers of clothing and gear I had to wear.
