This hike leads you into rugged upper Cedar Run Canyon. The trail down to the main falls is steep. However, aquatic rewards are many along the way—you pass innumerable cascades spilling down the narrow, boulderladen gorge, a wild place deserving of national park protection. Your trip to the cascades will be slow, because you will need to watch your footing and stop often to admire the scenery. Note: This hike can be busy on warmweather weekends.

These are easy, well defined trails. The waterfalls are very accessible and really nice. The Lower Cascades is by far the best! The leaves had just barely started to turn...not really yellow yet. Another week or two should be perfect.
