Trail shared by Nathan McKerley

A valley trail crisscrossing the creek, and leading to Fall Run waterfall in the center of the park.

Nathan McKerley

Features River/Creek · Waterfall

The trail has been damaged because of recent storms. One bridge is out, but the creek there is low and easy to cross. Use appropriate caution on the trails in the area.

Runner Notes

One of the bridges is out. Creek crossings and secondary trails offer more technical challenges for those interested.

Description

Park at either the south or north lots, as this trail can be accessed from either. The trail is well marked, and generally wide enough for two runners to navigate the way side by side. Gravel-covered, it weaves northeast crossing a dozen bridges over the creek. After half a mile (from either entrance), you arrive at a 20-ft high waterfall with stairs and bridges leading up its side. The trail is clear overhead generally, but the valley is cool and isolated from the surrounding neighborhoods.
