(What do these stats mean?)

This is pretty waterfall that is easy to visit, even for the non-adventurer. A sturdy boardwalk and wooden staircase have been constructed to, beside and above this waterfall. Unlike other sites, however, the boardwalk does not ruin the atmosphere. This falls is located just minutes from the city, and seconds from a major park, yet is remarkably rugged and peaceful. The falls is located in the Kinsmen Park, which borders the much larger Hiawatha Highlands Conservation Area, where a 35 km long network of trails could keep you busy hiking for hours.  (updated June 20, 2014).
