Added by Jake Young

Just off of Highway 32, this short hikes takes you to a roaring waterfall and is a perfect way to break up a long drive. 

This extremely short hike starts just off of Highway 32. From Chester, head southwest on 32 for roughly 21 miles. There is a turnout and a sign where the trail starts. 

This waterfall is best viewed in the spring when there is still a large amount of snow melt off. 

This waterfall is definitely not a destination hike, but is a perfect way to break up a longer drive on a hot summer day.
