The only sign I saw for this was a snowplow turnaround sign, so almost drove right on by. Nice place to stretch your legs, have lunch, or set a spell. Idyllic waterfall... Definitely worth the climb to the upper level.

The beginning of the hike is a bit steep but there's a metal fence and trees to use for support. Scenic and refreshing on a hot day. The kids all took a dip in the wading pools under the falls and the older kids/adults did...More

This water fall is easily accessible from the highway. Easy walk from the parking lot but there are stairs so not for strollers or wheel chairs.
