This hike is perfect for someone looking for a short, easy hike. Perfect for small kiddos too! The falls are beautiful and lots of rocks to hop the water on.

Nice falls that are easy to access even by parents with small kids. The walk up is mostly flat. the falls are gorgeous. There are some campsites scattered here and there with tents etc. so if that makes you nervous bring a buddy a long.

It takes about 15 minutes to get to the fall. The path is very smooth and easy to walk. Very low effort to see a large beautiful fall.

You don’t have to hike to the top to enjoy the falls. About a quarter of the way up, just past the viewing deck, there’s an area to wade in the water with the kids.
