The road is closed October-May, but the trail is still accessible.

Overview

This is a great beginner or family friendly run for the summer months. The unique Donut Falls is a popular attraction so the trail can be quite busy, so it might be best to visit early or on a weekday.

Description

This is a very easy, short trail to a cool waterfall! It is mostly flat, and worth it at the end. Wear shoes you can get wet. This trail is very busy, and parking often is limited. There is additional parking just off the main road, but will add an addition 1/2 mile to the run.
