    Amazing falls! This is a great trail for any age or skill level. In the summer heat and humidity it offers such a cool spray. The falls are especially spectacular right now because of the recent rains. It is a lovely place to bring the family, and great for dogs, too.

    Ate lunch at CCC woodbeam/poled shelter with fireplace and set off on our journey (19, 16, 12, 7 & 45 yrs young). The Waterfalls in the Upstate book we had said Moderate 1.3 miles to Falls (which are gorgeous!). brought the two dogs. Much longer than 1.3 miles; possible rerouting of the trail (not sure).... Enjoyed the different forest climates, sound of stream, 3 footbridges and 4 crossings.... Not suited for younger than 7 years of age.... No trail blazes/markings... BRING WATER! After the hike and return, take a left back on Rte 28 and head past Stumphouse Tunnel to a small roadside stand (on your left) for great boiled peanuts and a RC cola
