Hiked this trail yesterday with my two kids (5 & 8). We started at the top and walked down to the river area (rocks and small beach) then over to the boardwalk for a view of the falls. There were numerous people who climbed through the boardwalk fence to get to the rocks below despite the warning signs. If the authorities are serious about keeping people off those rocks they should use chain link to close off the gaps in the fence. The path down is short but can be steep at times. I highly recommend good shoes and walking sticks or trekking poles for those with bad knees. There is also a lower parking lot for those who cannot do the 1 mile hike.

Impromptu trail with my good friend. Very family-friendly, well-kept, and perfect for a quick walk. You get a great view of the falls at the end of the trail, and a lot of the trail is under shade and/or along the river. If you're feeling rebellious, you can climb over/around the trail's "boardwalk" and venture out to get a closer look at the falls. Nice restrooms/parking lot at about 2/3 of the way down!

Beautiful views of the falls from multiple different viewing decks up top. A short easy walk on a wide gravel path the leads to a wooden deck/walkway that takes you right down to the falls safely.
When we got to the bottom before the deck area we went down towards the river and found some great little sandy beach areas!
I enjoyed the markers on the sides of the trail that identified the different plants, berries, trees and even wildlife you might see.
Great place to visit for all ages:)

Beautiful little hike! It's a wide, easy path down from the upper plaza area to the river with lots of signage along the way, pointing out native plants and their native names and uses.
