"This trail begins at the Basin, one of the largest, most impressive glacially carved potholes you will ever see. It then follows Cascade Brook, ascending gradually past Kinsman and Rocky Glen falls and a series of smaller waterfalls, rapids, and potholes. Large, flat rocks along the brook are perfect for family picnics." Read more
