Beautiful falls, with the hike. The turnoff sign to the falls is not very clear, you may miss it. There is a very nice 2.4km hiking trail to the spectacular falls. I was constantly worried that we would come across a bear, but we didn't, there were many hikers on the trail. In future, I will carry bear spray... although I don't think I would be brave enough to face a bear and spray it:(
Absolutely amazing. It's definitely worth the walk all the way down the trail to the bottom of the falls. You can get surprisingly close to the falls and the views are breathtaking.
