A popular, easy run to the Maiden Cliffs.

Description

This is a popular spot, especially during the summer tourist months. the trail is serene, following a small stream before branching off to a steeper climb.

The trail will plateau after a while, and traverse the top of the cliffs.

The cliffs themselves are quite dramatic, rising over 800 ft. from the valley floor. Take note, there is a large cross erected in memory of Elenora French, a young girl of 11 who tragically fell to her death on the cliffs in 1862 (or 1864, depending on the source).
