Nice visitor's center with helpful employees. Ample parking available. Free. Trail to Cascade Falls had a couple slippery rough areas due to recent rain. Hiking boots and hiking stick needed. Distance is less than a mile.

No, it is not easy. If you go in, planning to stay in until your stay is over might be best for young children. If they are old enough to hike a bit that will help, but carrying them may be hard up and down the hills.
