Nice waterfalls, steep, heavily traveled.

Description

A well-marked, well-maintained path. The run is friendly for families to the top 2 or 3 waterfall overlooks, but note, the run out is uphill, where kiddos may wear out sooner than parents. Don't let that scare you—it's a great run. The waterfall observation points are very impressive—the third viewpoint down the path (looking up at the waterfall), is an impressive sight.
