After a steep descent into a 400-foot gorge, the trail continues downstream alongside a gushing stream, where giant sandstone boulders have created whitewater rapids. The trail passes through boulders on the slopes—where runoff waters create miniature waterfalls. It then passes a restored mill and a covered bridge. At the turnaround point it crosses the creek on a traffic bridge. On this side of the creek, it is a typical forest footpath, running about 100 feet above the stream.
