    A great, easy to visit waterfall. We didn't do a whole lot of research when heading North so this was a welcomed surprise and a nice pit stop. The waterfalls are large and easy to access. One of the few waterfalls that can be seen from the gravel parking for the handicapped. Nice bottomless pit bathrooms (beats a stump and a leaf) we want to visit again in the winter to see them all frozen.

    The sunlight was hitting this beautiful gem just right and we had to stop. I felt like I was in a fairy tale Forest walking through all of the flowers and the dirt path up to this absolutely stunning waterfall. There's plenty of trails and fun things to do around here if you're looking for a nice quiet walk through the woods.

    Beautiful large waterful just a short walk from the road! It's definitely worth stopping for! There seemed to be enough parking for the amount of people coming and going. There were some benches around to sit and enjoy and also a pit toilet.

    Couldn't have asked for a better day to be out leaf peeping! Near peak and even the clouds in the sky were beautiful! Flew my daughter from Illinois here for her first ever visit and there's never been a better day to do what we did!

    We were driving around looking at the fall colors and saw this on map. I'm so glad we stopped. There wasn't a ton of water cascading down the falls but still beautiful. I'd like to return in the spring to see in its full glory. Highly recommend this spot if you are on the area. Best of all, no hiking needed to enjoy this beauty.
