I had always heard about the falls but finally made it there. Gorgeous. Well maintained paths, clean and safe. Lots of people enjoying the area and respecting it. Make sure you bring your camera. Lots of beautiful pictures to be taken.

A nice little place to stretch your legs and have a pretty view. Go down the rock staircase on the Gorges trail that heads down to the river.

Yes, I took my rottweiler and he was fine. The wall down to the falls is a little difficult. I'd caution with smaller and older dogs though

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
