I will say that this place can get really busy even when it's raining so get there early if you can. The $10 entrance fee is very reasonable considering the great hike that awaits you. First thing you will notice is how lush and green...More

It took us 2.5 hrs to get to the Middle Falls via Woody Trail because of weak knees. The gradient wasn't too steep, but there were numerous roots and steps. After the 1.5 mi marker at the Picnic Shelter, the gradient got steeper, with more...More

Most likely you will not be able to park by the center, so don’t lose time driving and park on the grass area, there is secure parking over there for $10. The hiking to the lower and middle waterfall is pretty easy to medium, the...More

There seems to be space large enough for an RV. (but i'm not sure about staying overnight) On the weekend in good weather get there early in order to get a parking space. Good luck!
