The natural beauty of this place just blows you mind. Easy access and does get busy but who needs to rush.

The view from here looks like a painting. It's almost unreal in its beauty. Go before 10am or you won't have parking. Short walk from lot to overview. There are two 'overlooks' one is wheelchair accessible, the other requires a few stairs. Both are equally...More

What an incredible view. It's a short walk down to see this beautiful waterfall. Parking is scarce, so I recommend getting there early.

I was able to manage it on a broken foot using a cane - assuming you get a nearby park (and there was plenty of parking available when I visited but I was visiting very early in the season) there should not be an issue. If... More
