We had a nice hike and our children enjoyed splashing in the water. The trail was extremely crowded. Bathrooms and trails were clean, parking is easy.

Went twice in a couple of days before and after a winter freeze and it was spectacular!! It was practically empty of people so parking was free and plentiful. Went for a walk to the second falls and would absolutely go back again.

The waterfall could be great but during our visit there was very little water so it was quite a boring view. Not worth the drive. The surrounding forest and river are great but very busy (with French picnic families ruining the views) so you might...More

Our car's navigation took us to an unexpected car park part way up the falls. It turned out to be a bonus as we were pleasantly surprised at finding a cafe and the walk through the trees down and back up the falls. The walk...More

We visited on a sunny day after a lot of rain, and the waterfalls were clear and spectacular. We had two cars and therefore only had to walk downhill, which worked well with a toddler in a good back carrier. We have our own, but...More
