Trail shared by Luke Brisk

A singletrack trail that runs past an amazing waterfall.

Description

This under-utilized, less than 2-mile long singletrack trail's main feature is an great waterfall which is located about one mile up the trail. Starting out, it is easy going for short time as the trail parallels Bucks Ditch before starting a rocky climb with intermittent flat areas. Along the way you'll find a couple of stream crossings, some natural shelves, and cool rock formations.

About a quarter mile after the waterfall, the trail gets much harder to follow as some trees have fallen over the path and need to be cleared, but if you look carefully, you'll see where it has been flagged, and you should be able to follow it. The trail also does not have a clear ending as it eventually fades away at which point you turn around and head back the way you came.
