Snowshoe to Tamanawas Falls

Tamanawas Falls Trail - Search Nearby - Added by Austin Jackson

This is a beautiful waterfall that can be seen after a short snowshoe trek that is magnificent in the winter.

Starting at the Sherwood Trailhead, follow the sign towards Tamanwas Falls. You will walk through the woods towards the river, and cross it on the log bridge. After crossing the creek, you will begin to head uphill. Keep going this way through the woods for nearly 2 miles, and you will reach the 150 foot falls. You can explore around here and find the best angle for a photo op, but I find that the best opportunity is right on the trail. Return back the same way you came.

Winter Wonderland

I came here in December when the snow was fresh. It was like a fantasy. Hiking in the snow to a waterfall was quite an experience. Make sure to keep hydrated though because the cold makes you feel hydrated, but you actually aren't. Also, keep warm. Overall, the waterfall was stunning during this season. The icicles that bit down around the waterfall was gorgeous.
