We took a short boat trip across the lake and did the hike. A fairly easy hike. Bring your sunscreen and water. Beautiful wildflowers along the way looking out at the beautiful lake. Then you arrive at the falls. Beautiful sight. Well worth the hike....More

This is a very nice and easy hike to a beautiful waterfall. We saw white tailed deer on the trail and dippers at the falls. Keep going to Virginia Falls for another great waterfall!
