Learn history here about how in 1912' the falls were used to make electricity. This is a very steep area and the trail is short but worth seeing.

The falls are reached by a short but bumpy unpaved road. The story of the falls and surrounding area is interesting to read about. The falls themselves are reached by a very short trail from the parking area. It's a beautiful area and well worth...More

Easy hike off the road. A safely protected ares that allows one to view a wonderful sight. Up close, one sees the power of water. Spilling into the river of the same name, these falls are a must see. Be careful and read the signs...More

I'm not sure one should waste time heading to this waterfall. It's less than stunning. There is really only one place to see it well and any photos are thru a chain link fence. I suppose, if you're into hiking, you could take one of...More

Don't miss the signs for the turnoff to the Falls. Windy dirt road with potholes is short so manageable with a car. The road continues over a bridge past the falls and falls parking. We've walked some of it but aren't sure where it goes....More

This is worth the brief trek off the road. Be wise and mind the warnings to stay behind the fence. The view is gorgeous. The water color is aquamarine, possibly from copper in the area.
