The two unique waterfalls along Groff Creek make this a must-experience trip for waterfall lovers. Though technically a bushwhack (the trail is unmarked), it is very easy to follow all the way to the marsh at the end. The trail is at the end of the maintained section of River Road. The trail continues along this road briefly, but a sign warns that the road farther on is abandoned and you are proceeding at your own risk. At 0.2 mile, you will pass a designated camping area on your right that is encircled by tall pines and provides ample room to set up. Views of the river are limited from this site. Shortly past the designated campsite, you will see the remains of an old stone foundation on your left.
