The trail begins simply enough, with an interpretive section through some areas with historic relics. It passes over a brownish stream and then winds through a deciduous wood until arriving at a road.
After crossing the road, the trail dives back into mixed forest and begins to steepen. After the first waterfall pool, it become significantly more aggressive and can be difficult to follow due to it winding across rock surfaces and venturing out into the cascade area.
At one point, the trail crosses the stream, but if you venture up the cascade slabs you will come to the "secret room", where a waterfall drops about twenty feet into a three-sided rectangular stone chamber (a purely natural feature).
Above this, though steep, the trail is no longer rocky, though there are some areas where you could fall some distance from the trail to the cascade.
Once you reach the "End Of Trail" sign, you can turn back, or venture out into the cascade. There are still some worthwhile sights above the trail end.
The images for this trail were taken on two separate days - on the first day we were driven out by a thunderstorm.
Though short, this is a trail that can be steep and slippery in some areas. The author, though experienced and well equipped, slipped while taking the trail over a set of steep rounded granite slabs.
Waterfall Trail Warning
This trail has the potential to cause significant injury, as a result of its course across steep rock slabs, rounded boulders, and the cascade itself.
Waterfall Trail Warning - Best Views From Cascade
Many of the best views are from the center of the cascade, with adds extra potential for a fall, and can cause a risk of drowning when the water is even moderately deep. Bring a first aid kit and make sure you know how to use it. If you bring children, keep them close.
