Walked the .5 mile trail to see waterfall up close. Waterfall is beautiful and great to get some photos. Walk is very pretty and we saw several deer along the walk. Worth the effort to see it up close.

The lower falls is a short walk to the viewing area. He should have no problem with that. I think you have to hike to the top of the falls for the "upper," which would be too much. Park your car and take advantage of the... More
