You'll definitely get your exercise getting to the falls but its well worth the hike. Make sure you have appropriate sneakers or hiking boots to make the trek up or down the trails to get to the falls. Beautiful Falls

If you want a relaxing day of hiking and waterfall, this is not the place. Tourists from all over are crowded on every rock here. Although it is cool to see, I wouldn't plan my day around it.

Wow! Amazing! This was the fifth Falls on our tour and the most well known and busy. It's a bit of a hike up but well worth the effort! You will love it... don't miss it!

We were fortunate to visit after some rainfall and this waterfall was spectacular. It was about 3/4 mile hike in, over uneven ground and uphill. Wear some good shoes and enjoy the view along the way-it will be worth it!

We were told about this area when we went shopping in Lee the previous day. It is a gentle two mile walk on a fairly wide path through the woods and alongside a rapid flowing stream. The walk was a gradual uphill climb ending at...More

From the shorter side no, but from the other side it depends. We were able 2 push a stroller down the trail all the way 2 the falls, but it is tricky in some spots.
