Amazing waterfall, especially in spring and after rainy days. Beautiful mountain trail and nice state park with small areas for picnics. Free spacious parking.

This a is beautiful place. It’s a natural waterfall. Grew up in this area and in the summer a local swimming hole. A bit icy in winter so be careful a dogs and small children.

Small falls. Short walk from parking lot, not difficult but there is no signs or other information pointing which was to go. No cost involved.

We went with a large group of family members thinking that this was a state park that was still being maintained. There is no entrance fee, and therefore there is no maintenance. However, there is a bathroom, but there is not a sink in there,...More
