Located in the Dukes Creek Falls Recreation Area, this trail provides a trek down into the creek gorge to view several scenic waterfalls. From the trailhead elevation of 2,107 feet, the path drops 340 feet through a pair of long switchbacks. Along the way the trail descends on a broad path with very few steep spots. Before starting down the Dukes Creek Falls Trail, take a moment to look to the southeast. A good view of the distinctively shaped Mount Yonah is afforded from this spot. The trail begins to the west, traveling along a relatively fl at, paved path that leads to an observation deck. This first portion is wheelchair accessible to the overlook. From the deck, a 300-foot cascade can be seen on the opposite side of the gorge.
