Be prepared to walk SLOWLY up the steep stairs to get to the falls. It doesn't take very long; however if you are out of shape you will need to stop every so often to catch your breath. Once you get there it is a beautiful view of the falls. Kids climbed up to the top to see and went... 更多
I have been going to mingo falls since the 70's and it is always a great view. My son the more adventurous one walked towards the falls and climbed many of the rocks. There are some excess logs that could be removed but definitely worth the visit.

Beautiful brief hike to see a water fall! My husband, I and our 2 1/2 year old loved this little hidden piece of nature. The hike did have a lot of stairs in the beginning, so we had to help our son out quite a bit. Otherwise, he did just fine the rest of the hike.
As many times as we have visited the park, we have never stopped to visit Mingo until this trip. The short hike to the falls is not strenuous bit has a tremendous amount of wooden steps for those who may struggle climbing them and then the rest is a dirt trail. The climb is certainly worth it. When we arrived... 更多
