This summer was a dud for most waterfalls in the area due to the well below average rainfall, but this one still had enough flow to make the trip worth it. Be aware it's become quite the tourist trap, and part of the trail connecting it to Tew's falls is now closed off.

This Conservation Area is home to many local families on the weekend where it can get quite busy. There are several places to view the falls and plenty of space for fun and picnicking.

Definitely Worth a look. Only complaint, Parking is... 更多
