Surprising find on way back from North Shore. There is a fee if you want to hike to the falls but enjoy the tranquility and have a light lunch at the surprising café in the park.

This place offered a very easy, beautiful, paved hike to the falls. Along the way there's a lot of information and stops to asks questions. We not only say beautiful falls, but learned a lot about the area culture.
