We set out to hike to Otter Falls for the first time today. When we arrived at the bridge over the Taylor River, we discovered that the bridge was out. We were not able to reach the trailhead. We did some exploring to see if we could cross the river another way, but we did not find any safe options. We were disappointed not to be able to make the hike, but we had fun exploring the nearby campground and some small trails along the river.
We took the family (16 year old, 14 year old, 10 month old, mom and dad, and spent the night. There were several blow down trees across the trail, but still it was a pleasant trail. Otter falls were beautiful. When we were packing up to leave a boyscout troup had hiked in and were watersliding down the lower face of the falls into the lake. well worth the hike.
