To reach Crabtree Falls is challenging, leading you on a steady descent, but the falls are absolutely gorgeous and well worth the effort. A single tree stands at the base of the falls, while the bold creek swiftly passes it by. A bench built into a footbridge at the base is a perfect place to take in the scenery while the dogs enjoy sniffing and playing around in the creek.
