Make a quick, steep descent to a grand sight on the West Branch of the Ausable River, and a bonus falls just down the road. If you’re looking for a nice, short, easy hike to a beautiful view . . . this isn’t it. You’ll get the beautiful view, but only after inching your way down a slippery needle-covered slope to the edge of a high cliff , where you’ll find a notch with a mini-falls. You may ask, “Is this what I came down here for?” The answer is no—the majestic Wilmington Notch Falls can be seen by scrambling around the notch to the right, where you can stand on a high ledge behind a nice, stable slab of rock and enjoy an excellent view of a powerful cascade.
