Representing beauty and grace, the crystal-clear water of Silver Run Creek prances over the rock face before forming a perfect pool at the base. The whole family will enjoy wading out into the creek, or sitting on the large stones perfectly placed along the water’s edge—including your happy hounds. Bring a picnic, and a towel, you’re probably going to want to stay a while. This short and easy-to-follow trail brings you back into the woods on a wide gravel path. The hike is shaded, and you instantly feel the cool air from the moving water. You can hear the falls and the birds singing the minute you step on the trail. As you stroll through the forest, you’ll pass blossoming rhododendron, tall poplars, and colorful maple trees.
