Cataract Falls has scant parking nearby so you’re better off checking it out on weekday, but any day you get there is apt to be a good one. Hiking in Heels enthuses:
The beautiful trail was lush and very green, but had few wildflowers. The waterfall was set against a background of green and we found many places to stop and have our picnic. Every step of the hike, there’s a different view of the falls, ones with massive drops and ones with smaller ones. I absolutely fell in love with the Cataract Falls and this hike just shot up to top 3 on my list.
Cataract is pretty steep but it’s not too long. Here’s my account from February 2008, when I thoughtfully forgot my camera and had to do some actual writing.
