Climb an old logging road to a series of short falls on Brandy Creek. Brandy Creek Falls descend in low-angled stair steps, fanning over slick, shiny slabs and weaving through boulder-choked channels. The path that explores the falls wanders over footbridges and tangles of tree roots that can be slippery in wet weather or when soaked by mist. The complexity of the walking and the different faces of the falls make for an enlivening end-of-trail experience—a nice conclusion to an otherwise straightforward climb through a dark, dense woodland.
