  • This unique little gem is tucked away, but worth the short hike! There are two main trails: lower and upper. Lower takes you to the bottom of the falls and has a spectacular perspective of the falls and the rocks below from a small wooden bridge. The upper falls are a longer hike, and offer sweeping views of the Columbia. Both hikes are quite short, and can be done in regular athletic shoes. I'd recommend something with ankle support if you have it due to the rocky path.

  • the .8 mile hike to the waterfall was totally doable and absolutely worth it. parking was very easy and for two out of shape novice hikers it wasn't too physically demanding. the waterfall was spectacular and the photos we took are once in a lifetime!

  • A hidden gem along the historic highway. Much less crowded than other stops and is an easy out and back hike. If you're up for it, you can climb and get behind the falls.

  • Easy hike. We managed in sandals with 4 kids aged 12 and under. The falls a beautiful. Prepare to get a little wet!

  • Incredible! The hike isn't too bad either.
