  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. The waterfall is breathtaking and if you’re looking for a trail to hike, this place has many! It was very easy to spot on the road and we found nice parking right by the bridge. The rocks are fun to climb down to the river!
  • Beautiful and impressive site. A few different hiking trails of different levels and length are available from this point. Definitely worth a stop, even if you don't have time for a hike.
  • Right off the side of the road, but such a nice area. Has some trails leading back into the woods as well. Lots of rocks to sit (or climb) on. Boys loved it.
  • Beautiful waterhole! Parking is limited so plan accordingly. It is great place to visit for a picnic and take pictures .
  • This is one of the must-see locations in the park! There is not much parking available, but I have rarely had problems finding a spot. This is a great spot to take a picnic and an incredible view is available from parking lot
