We hiked this trail again in May after having a lot of rain. The
falls were spectacular! The trail is slightly challenging, but relatively
easy compared to some trails we have been on. There is a beautiful
viewing area located at the base of the falls that is handicap
accessible. There is a parking fee of $3.00 and there are picnic
tables and a primitive restroom facility at the parking area. This is
a very popular trail and there are usually a lot of people there, but
because they are spread out on the trail, it doesn't seem crowded
at all. These falls are best viewed after rain, but are beautiful even
when the water is low. At the top of the falls the views are beautiful.
It's a great hike into Valle Crucis. The scenery and drive is amazing
as well. You won't be disappointed."
