There is a parking lot and it is well signed. View Larger Map

There is a great looking mill at the top of the falls. The bottom of the gorge can be very difficult to get to. It either involves a dangerous decent near the falls or a long walk along the trail behind the mill to a point where it is safer to descend, and then making your way back upstream to the base of the falls. The lower falls is around the first bend from the upper falls.
