You can pull off to the side of the road for photos of the falls.... The stop is well worth making. We had an opportunity to take a number of scenic photos.

Go early in the day so you can easily park...def worth the stop. Wish there was a way to get a better view from down below the falls...and a crosswalk would be helpful!

We had no idea that this falls was coming up as we were driving along. When we passed it we knew it was worth turning around for. We got out, walked around and took lots of pictures. Beautiful falls!

We wandered across this as we were traveling and had to stop and take in the sheer majesty of the falls. Everyone there was friendly and nice as we all enjoyed the beauty of the waterfall.
