    Some absolutely necessary items

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring good shoes...the Falls Trail is a rough hike--lots of stone steps, muddy inclines, switchbacks. Waterproof shoes/boots would be ideal

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: First Aid kit...it's easy to scrape yourself against a rock or slide down a hill
    **BUG SPRAY IN THE SPRING**

    Photo Equipment: Everything you have!

    Luggage and bags: I would wear a light backpack that goes on both shoulders and is comfortable on your back.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Wear light clothes! If you arent going to wear bug repellent then long pants so you dont get bit up. A light t shirt. Shoes that are supportive of your ankles.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I think a first aid kit would be handy, just in case.

    Photo Equipment: You most definitley need a camera, 35 mm, digital, and/or video!! Whatever you got or all of them!!! The falls are beautiful and you will regret it if you dont bring them.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There is a campground and a beach but I dont know much about them. I think you have to reserve it and pay!!

    Miscellaneous: I would grab a trail map before you start the hike!
