Runner Notes

This trail works really well as a fun and scenic detour on a longer run through the state park.

Description

This trail takes you on a quick foray through Ottawa Canyon to its stunning falls. Be sure to bring your camera and some waterproof footwear, as it's likely you'll get your feet wet trying to take the perfect shot. The undercut rock formation at the back of the canyon allows runners to travel behinds the falls for a unique perspective.

Flora & Fauna

Verdant deciduous trees greet visitors at the canyon's mouth, while lush mosses adorn its walls near the trail's end.
