TRAIL DESCRIPTION: improved paths and viewing platforms allow easy access to these popular falls. Also a popular swimming area with tourists in the summer, with braver souls leaping from the top of the falls into the plunge pool below, it can be difficult some days to get a private viewing of these falls.

During the winter, the trails surrounding the area are groomed for cross country skiing.
