"An enjoyable jaunt down an old road leads to views of a pretty waterfall. Lands Run Falls is not especially high, nor can you see the entire falls from the trail. But the setting is lovely, and the trek provides a nice leg stretcher. Woods flanking the trail are dominated by oaks and hickories, interspersed with tulip poplars. Many of the healthiest oaks here were knocked down by Tropical Storm Fran in 1996. Those not already denuded by gypsy moths were so heavily laden with leaves that they were easily toppled by the strong winds. In addition to a lovely forest, there is a great deal of greenstone (volcanic rock) exposed by soil erosion. Look for greenstone on the uphill side of the road. From the Lands Run parking area, follow the fire road, which descends immediately and continues to do so." Read more
