Great little day trip for the family. Trails are flat and well packed on the upper part of the system. The trail to the river below the falls are extreme. Switchbacks, steep grades, wet rocks, poison ivy, and narrow trails make hiking difficult. Wear good...More

Hello, The trail has a couple of wheel chair friendly overlooks of the falls. The trail is not paved, but is a fairly fine crushed stone that should not impact your trip
