  • It's a beautiful place to visit. The weather right now is perfect for it. First of all, make sure you arrive early because they have a very small parking lot and it fills up fast. The parking fee is $10 for the whole day. Make sure to bring appropiate shoes because the trail to the waterfall is very, very long, rocky, narrow and sometimes even slippery. You can easily twist or break your ankle so walk carefully. Bring a backpack with plenty of water, bug repellent and some snacks if you can. I didn't think it would be that far, and I only brought water with me and my blood sugar dropped. Luckily someone gave me some snacks and I managed to finish the hike. If you love nature, this is a very good place to go and decompress. Especially if you live in the city. Great views that make for beautiful pictures. Just be ready to walk A LOT. The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is because I feel like the signs are not accurate. It said 1.7 miles to the waterfall but you end up walking way more than that.
  • Aaaaaaaamaaaaaaaazing hike. The ice caves are absolutely amazing. The trail has quite the variety of difficulties for everyone to enjoy. BE WARNED! Parking can be an issues and you might have to wait or go another day.
