Allens Park Trail to Calypso Cascades

Allens Park Trail to Calypso Cascades Professional Review and Guide

"Lovely Calypso Cascades are named for the equally lovely calypso orchids that bloom nearby in July.

According to ancient Greek legend as recorded in The Odyssey Calypso was a nymph who bewitched the voyager Odysseus into staying on her island for seven years while he was trying to get home from the Trojan War to his wife, Penelope. Modern travelers on Wild Basin trails likely do not face this hazard. If you are gone for seven years, something else is amiss."
