When you enter the woods there will be a tight trail but it will quickly open up. When it does, you want to take a left...

    Hike to Indian Ladder Falls Along Hornbecks Creek

    3.5
    2 mi / 400 ft gain
    For some time, the trail was eroded above the first falls on Hornbecks Creek, not allowing hikers to access the creek's upper falls if they were coming upstream from Route 209. I am writing this in June 2017 and that is no longer the case! You can hike from Rt. 209 all the way up the creek to Eme...

    Photograph Indian Brook Falls

You can barely call it a hike, but I'll list it as such since you do walk through the woods for 5 minutes. The trail is extremely well built, and is pretty easily accessible through the winter.The trai...

    The waterfall is about 0.2 miles into the hike. I would recommend going to the very top of the biggest waterfall towards the end of the hike, there are steps leading up to it! There's also a hidden water hole at the very top of the waterfall about 0.2 miles up stream, I saw people in it during th...
