The falls are definitely worth the stop! Easy climb up the stairs and a short walk to the falls. We also hiked to the very top of Mingo Falls where there is a much smaller waterfall. The hike to the top is a bit challenging at times and the trail is not well maintained. Mingo Falls is one of my... 更多
