Description

Added by Lucas Bremer

A scenic hollow with a waterfall and sandstone canyon.

A great short hike in Ferne Clyffe State Park with a big payoff that is nearly wheel chair accessible with compact crushed gravel as a path. The trail leads to a 100-foot tall intermittent waterfall. The trail is lined with huge boulders, meandering stream, and progressively narrowing canyon becoming more scenic as you progress towards the waterfall.

The waterfall almost always is wet, but the best time to view are after rainfall.

The entire Ferne Clyffe State Park is filled with beauty and history. Learn more here.
