This short meandering trail is one of the most popular in the area. The flat asphalt would make it easy to roll a wheelchair to within a good view of the falls. Expect large crowds during the summer.

In winter, it becomes an ice fall popular with ice climbers.

Super easy with good views. If you aren't a local and can only do one easy hike, this should be it. Great views on the drive too. ADA accessible
