Runner Notes

While this route may be busy during peak times, the trail is lovely on a quiet morning.

Description

The Johnston Trail leads straight from the Entrance Road to the Falls Overlook, providing the shortest and most direct route to a great view of the Bent Mountain Falls. Because this route is shorter, you may find that this route is a bit more crowded, especially on summer weekends. The going is still shaded and pleasant, and the viewpoint is a spectacular end to this lovely run.
