Features Waterfall

ADA Accessible The first tenth of a mile of this trail is paved and affords access to the base of the falls. Past this area, the trail features stairs and is not accessible.

Need to Know

Ascending, there are multiple unmarked trails that meet with the trail on the right. These can be a bit confusing, but as long as visitors stay to the left this should not pose a problem.

Description

Though this trail climbs a couple of hundred feet over a little under four-tenths of a mile, the stairs that are available make this hike far less strenuous than it would otherwise be.

This trail begins at the parking lot for the park. Immediately after leaving the parking lot, it crosses over a small covered bridge. The first tenth of a mile is paved and brings visitors right to the base of the falls. It then ascends up a set of wooden stairs that follows along the bank of the falls.

In multiple stops, the stairs widen into platforms for observation. While this boardwalk is pretty old and rundown, it is the best way to see all of the falls as they descend in stages over a quarter of a mile.
