Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This balloon loop cobbles together a network of old settler roads and newer foot trails to explore the Bottom Creek valley.

First, climb to a ridgetop plateau and enter a formerly settled area with evidence of the past, from chimneys to fence posts and more. Next, enjoy natural features such as 200-foot Bent Mountain Falls, then finally visit Bottom Creek, where pools and cascades form an area known as The Kettles."
