Grotto Falls in background with rock path on the right. Taken November 2018 on a rainy/snowy ascent of Mt. Laconte. A little rain makes the creek crossings swollen. Socks were damp to say the least even with Gortex leather mid-hiking boots.

The trail runs along a section of forest burnt by the Chimney Fire in 2016. Its easy to see the new growth amongst the damaged trees.

One of the steeper sections of the trail that climbs away from the falls back up toward the ridge.
