Don't miss this place. We went on a Wednesday while school was in session, and we almost had the place to ourselves. The music they play throughout the gardens is relaxing and adds to the experience making it feel like the magical place of natural...More

We really enjoyed our visit. Great pkace for families. Beautiful gardens, scenery. Not a place for people who have ambulatory issues. We really liked that most trees and plants were marked with species and type names. Awesome waterfall, sights and views. Well worth the cost.

Lovely place. Beautiful views. The only negative is that there are a lot of kids who got very ‘unruly’ and annoying.

I was aware of the falls, gnomes, and the seven states overlook, but I had no idea about the rest! I was lucky to visit on a particularly beautiful day. The trails were very nice, but it did get a bit tight in some spots....More

It sure was on Dec 21st! I would think every night is packed. Go early to secure a spot.

You will have NO PROBLEMS! The path is paved very well and the climbing is done by car. One you get there, it's level. You will encounter steps every now and then, but nothing strenuous.
