“An earthy trail that is abundant in rivers, waterfalls, and beautiful flora/fauna.”— Justin S.
Continue on a bit and you'll discover the twin waterfall! There is dripping moss and bright yellow monkey flowers between the waterfalls. If you keep going you'll come to a short switchback. As you make your first switch on the left-hand side is a huge old-growth tree made for photo ops. There is more old-growth along the trail, saved by the wilderness boundary. Another waterfall is further up the trail for a perfect picture. After the second big waterfall, the trail climbs away from the river. Although there are no mountain views, the forest here is still amazing.
