This waterfall is a beautiful waterfall with a set of steps. We used the beautiful waterfall as a backdrop for our Christmas Card Photo. Shots turned out gorgeous!!! It's not a very big park, the parking is limited and you definitely need to be able...More

It's a small waterfall. That's it. More interesting in the winter when it is frozen, but wholly unremarkable and not worth a special trip. NOTE: the steps are very steep, not good for old folks or handicapped folks.

A quick and easy boardwalk to a pretty waterfall. Not big but doesn't have to be. Decent vista to the river on the steps, too.

It's a short walk from the parking area to the fall but it's down a bunch of steps. Well worth it though. Absolutely beautiful.

Hayden Falls is right across the river on Hayden Road and Riverside Drive but most people drive-by daily and never know it’s there. It’s hidden away on the south west corner just passed the bridge and there’s only a tiny parking lot to park and...More

Expect to get a little wet when you get to the waterfall, but it’s worth it!! Wear appropriate shoes for lots of steps and a slippery wood surface. Overall, took only about 10 minutes to walk to the falls and back.

The Fall has easy access from the stairs just next to the major road, from the start to the fall takes only 5 to 10 mins. Parking is easy but only have few space. The fall is not big scale but the mist is nice...More

This place is beautiful! The stairs and deck that you walk to get to the waterfall is well maintained and tree lined. The water sounds wonderful and looks even better! There are no places to sit so bring a camp chair and/or picnic if you...More

Have been meaning to come here to take the short walk on the boardwalk along the creek to the falls, but the tiny parking lot was always full. Stop by when you're out, and it's worth getting out of the car and taking the steps....More

There really isn't anything there except a very short trail walk to the water fall. It's nice, but there are no bathroom facilities and no picnic tables. If you want to do other things, you'll have to go to another park.
