The waterfalls was really nice. Just a short walk from the visitor center at Pipestone, it was reached by a paved path. Lots of shade trees to get under from the heat and we loved our time there.

This was such a surprise on a short circular nature walk!!! Gorgeous. Worth walking to. You go from tall grass prairie to the mountains almost. Loved it.

Beautiful waterfall amid the Pipestone formations. The stream moves fast and it is a nice walk along side it.

These falls are encountered along the Circle Trail at Pipestone National Monument. If it's a hot day, you can get some relief on the footbridge at the base of the falls. The breeze will carry the spray your way.
