Copper Falls State Park - Cascades Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The trail to the falls rolls through a dense forest of hemlock, sugar maple, and birch. Fragrant cedar trees appear as you enjoy an easy, gradual 300-yard run down to the gorge. A few dozen yards north of the trail, an observation platform offers a great view of the Brownstone Falls as it drops 30 feet into a deep gorge.

The reddish, sharply fractured rock is hardened lava that once flowed up from fissures in the earth’s crust. A short distance beyond the falls, a bridge across Tyler Forks affords a view of the Cascades upstream. Held tightly in winter’s grip, these rapids are mounded with snow. Here and there, open swirling pools dot the snow- and ice-covered scene. Surface quality: Groomed, single tracked. Fees: yes."
