The falls are beautiful, hope you get lucky finding a parking spot...very small pulloff area for parking and the viewing area was congested with people tripping over each other. This park apparently is under funded and under staffed.

You can view Christine Falls from the main road to Paradise, but it's better to jump on the Van Trump Park Trail and see it from the overlook bridge. Van Trump creek flows so gracefully through chasms and forms lovely cascades and pools. What a...More
