The Waterfall Glen Trail is a 9.5 mile loop that is filled with hikers, runners, mountain bikers, and dog lovers. The trail is very scenic, featuring marvelous waterfalls and lots of melodious frogs.

This trail is recommended for use from March - November, but is great for cross country skiing in the winter. The trail is covered with packed down gravel, and is sometimes used by equestrians.

Waterfall Glen

Very nice, fairly even trail. We walked to the falls on a hot day. Next time would consider biking this trail.
