Go Chasing Waterfalls

At the 3rd bridge, a shortcut exists if you stay to the left. It cuts down a little bit of the hike if you're feeling lazy. The trail winds along the mountain and really allows you to appreciate the rock formations/caves. There are a lot of great photo ops at the falls. We brought our bathing suits, expecting to wade in the water but there weren't many spots to do so, maybe the flow was low. You can do both this and Ramsey's Cascades in the same day. Ramsey's hike is more difficult but with a more rewarding view. I'd recommend this hike be your warmup for Ramsey's.

Go Chasing Waterfalls

Getting to the trailhead can be tricky for anyone with a sports car, as the road that leads through the park is gravel and bumpy at points. Be prepared for single car width portions of the road. The hike begins with a gradual incline which may fool some into believing that this is an easy hike, psyche!The last half mile is killer, be prepared for a lot of stone steps. This is definitely a hike where you want to wear high ankles boots. I recommend bringing aqua socks, because at the top you can walk right up to the falls, since it plateaus directly underneath. The hike totaled 8.2 miles on my Fitbit Surge. The difficulty of the hike is only surpassed by the reward of the falls.

Easy and Breathtaking

From the parking lot, you only need to walk 500 feet slightly downhill into the woods to get a number of great views from the cliffs. As you progress down the trail there are many opportunities to get pictures of small waterfalls. Around 1/2 mile towards the left of the parking lot, at the end in the river, you can scale down between the cliffs and walk along the river. There are rock beds near the river that make a great place for a short break. Coming here on a sunny day is hard to beat. There's a fantastic energy to this place. From the signs reminding you to "make someone smile today", to the the birds flying overhead, there's peace and tranquility to be found and enjoyed.

Short but Treacherous.

I came in March as the snow was melting. Before crossing the wooden bridge, be sure to check out the cave on the right. It's barely bright enough to walk though without a light, but your cell phone should do. At the end you get a nice view of the river and the start of the trail. You must come back out the way you come in as the cave ends at the river, about 20 feet up (don't worry there's a fence). Once you cross the bridge, the falls trail is on your right. When you head down the stairs you'll want to make a right and head under the bridge, then make another right and the train should be visible once you go up he hill about 50 feet. After this the trail is easy to follow but at times, hard to navigate. Wear hiking shoes and bring a hiking stick. The falls, all 3 of them, are enough to leave you with a smile on your face. There's an easy trail to head down at the top of the third falls on your right so you don't have to go down the same way you came up; it's also easier on the knees.
