An easy side trail; the trip from parking to trailhead is more challenging than the trail!

Description

This is a nearly flat trail that almost qualifies as a suburban path. There are minimal trip hazards, so you can casually run along the bank of the river to the falls. While the falls are less than impressive in stature, they are interesting because they span the entire width of the river. There is an observation platform at the end of the trail, adjacent to the falls.

You can continue beyond the end of the trail down a moderate slope to the base of the falls. This is an excellent choice for large groups or a group consisting of mixed ability who want a bit more than a "windshield" view, but still want to keep things simple.

My rating is an average of 3 stars because it's a nice stroll, but not impressive in any way, and 5 stars for accessibility.
