Comments
Comments: Pleasant hike to the cascades. Good time to do this, not only due to water volume but you get obscured views of surrounding mountains due to ne leaves on the trees yet. This water fall keeps going and going; first section looks like steps, upper sections are different. When you get toward the top, keep a watch for the yellow arrow pointing toward a space between two cascades. Good place to take a break and enjoy the scenery. You can see a rainbow formed by the mist. This place is seriously underrated, I seldom see reports for it or hear people talk about it.
