Looking down on a stairways to the
Lower waterfalls.
A 3/4 mile long hiking trail will take you from a paved parking lot down a paved trail to the first falls which is fairly easy and it is wheelchair accessible. Remainder of the trail is more strenuous with boardwalks leading to the second falls and stairway dropping down to an observation platform overlooking the scenic Hills Creek lower falls with falling water of 63 feet. Coming back up pace yourself on the stairs and avoid overexertion.

Beyond the first waterfalls is an rough path that uses wood and metal platform and stairways with a lot of stairs to allow access to the middle falls and the lower falls along the steep gorge of Hills Creek.
