My husband, adult son, and I hiked to the falls easily. Although somewhat steep, the trail to the falls is short, not even a half mile. Take water if it's hot. This is a beautiful waterfall with easy access but if you have trouble walking...More

My wife and I hiked the Minnehaha Falls after we spent the afternoon hiking the Tallulah Gorge. To gain access to this Falls is quite easy. It's a small hike compared to Tallulah Falls. The waterfall is beautiful and makes great for a photo backdrop.

A very short hike to an impressive waterfall. It's worth the drive along the windy dirt road. It's uphill all the way, but a very short and easy hike. We saw some people in flip flops on the trail as well as small children.

What a great find. This will go down as a waterfall my kids will remember when they are old. It's a true hidden gem with an amazing payoff. You can get into the falls and really connect at this location. We had the entire fall...More

Very hard to find, hard to get to, but once you're there... it's breathtaking! Great place for a picnic or snack. No facilities however.

Short and beautiful. Clean, easily accessible. Nice little walk up to the falls, not crowded. Had a lot of fun!

This fall is beautiful and a great place to spend some time with family. It is in a secluded and beautiful location. You can climb the fall and enjoy nature. My family had a great time

Easy hike and great for kids. Drive is bumpy the last 5 miles and not a lot of space to park. Go before noon and during the week. Bring a change of clothes and don't wear flip flops. Just take hiking shoes off when you...More
