Easy to get to and park. Views are excellent any time of the day but especially at sunset. You can walk down to the base of the falls. Even though the stairs are steep, the walk is well work the effort.

Plenty of walks in this area and less busy that some other places. Fairly easy walks to both the Bridal Veil Falls and Horseshoe Falls. Longer walks for the more adventurous.

Nice view of the surrounding valleys and Bridal Veil falls. Trailhead for a number of trails, none of which we did. There is also an excellent visitors center near by.
