Nice Quiet Hike

This is not a very long hike but it provides some wonderful scenery. The leaves in the fall are beautiful and the waterfall is wonderful. Sat beside it for almost an hour and just enjoyed the sound of the water crashing down. Not very crowded.

Good Little Adventure

Really beautiful hike, not exactly much of a mountain view anywhere but the waterfall towards the end of the trail is literally breathtaking. The trail is actually a fantastic length, it takes around 30 minutes up and a little less on the way down if you're moving at casual pace. Make sure you bring water shoes or a change of shoes, as you do have to cross water multiple times, and slipping in and having wet socks for the rest of the hike is not great.
