"This hike is beautiful. It may confuse you and kick your butt, but it is well worth it. The scenery is amazing and the hills challenging. The best time to go might be on a foggy day, when you’ll feel like you’re in a magical place. One of the best things about this hike is that the trails are only open to foot traffic. After hiking for a few minutes, you’ll begin to climb steadily. Again, keep an eye out for large rocks, take your time, and watch your footing. After some rolling hills, you’ll hear the running water of the creek and waterfall below." Read more

Starts on the side of a hill. A bit slippery and rocky path until you cross the river. Not recommended for strollers or people with difficulty walking. Breathtaking surrounding.
