Shaded the entire way, this pleasant hike leads you up to a splendid little waterfall, and then continues to climb as it circles around John Rock. Although you can’t see John Rock from the trail, you can view it from the parking lot before you begin. The forest is fantastic, and you’ll make several creek crossings at the beginning and end of the loop. The middle 2.0 miles of the hike have no natural water sources, so bring enough drinking water for you and the dogs—especially since this is the most strenuous section of the trail.
