Clifty Creek Natural Area Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Clifty Creek contains a diverse collection of plants and animals. It also includes a natural arch, an iconic geological formation. The creek’s name derives from the high cliffs in the area: local usage of the word clift became clifty to describe the creek. This trail is a pleasure every step of the way."
