Comments, Notes: When you are parked, the trail information will be to the left. Take the trail to the right of the sign and go right down the short trail. The trail to the bridge is very easy. Cross the bridge and follow the trail to the right again. You will see a small trail off to the right that leads to the base of the falls. For the upper view of the falls park on the roadside before you get to the actual parking area. Use extreme caution when viewing from the topside
