It is great day trip. Make sure you have sturdy footwear that can get wet, a rope to line up and down your canoe and lift-jackets. Watch out for poison ivy too! On a sunny day watch for the five lined Skinks sunning themselves on the rocks at high falls. The skinks are at risk so do not disturb them.
