We enjoyed hiking on the trails to the falls and spending some time around the water. The falls were almost dry due to the drought, but it was still beautiful and worth the trip.

This hike was the limit length-wise for our 4-year old daughter but the falls are beautiful! We enjoyed the view of the upper falls.

Very pretty falls. 1/4 (lower) or 3/4 (upper) mile trail from the campground parking area. Great for kids & for wading in the river.

There are 2 falls in the same area. It takes about an hour to see both. Definitely worth getting out to see! Nearby there is another fall, which is better, Helton Creek Falls. That one doesn't take much time at all to see and is...More

Absolutely, but you probably should have a leash handy!
