Just about anyone can make their way to this fall. It is a short walk from the parking lot and well worth it because it is a beautiful fall.

You can't find too much easier of a hike to view a waterfall. A wide, flat trail led us to this beauty right off the trail. We arrived later in the day, so there weren't a ton of people there. It was a very nice...More

The falls are about a half-mile from the parking lot. The trail is flat, and it follows Deep Creek. What surprised me was watching the people who were tubing down stream past the falls - - They didn't seem to notice the waterfall as they...More

Wide, gravel road to walk to the falls (two other falls in the immediate area). No pets (several people did not realize this). Nice falls coming into the river with areas to sit and enter the river.
