If you blink you’ll miss it—but there’s a lot to miss. The mini-trek to Little Zigzag Falls is a short but sweet deep forest hike with all the glorious attributes of old growth. A lush canopy and a duffy trail with Little Zigzag River as a constant companion make it a welcome leg stretch or afternoon family hike. The trail stays close to the Little Zigzag River, and with good reason. Though it's only .3 mile to the falls, there are numerous photogenic spots that might require a few moments' worth of contemplation. The trail ends at the base of Little Zigzag Falls and its major-league-level splash pool and beach area. Being partially spring fed, the cascade maintains a robust presentation all year long.
