Runner Notes

The fallen leaves get very deep in the fall, making the trail difficult to wade through.

Description

There is very little elevation change along this easy forested trail with some amazing views. It's mostly easy to follow if you keep an eye out for the white blazes.

Park at the stone gates and follow the trail down into the forest.

There is one part where you WILL have to do some rock climbing! It's not hard, just know that when you come up to a rock face blocking the trail, climbs up it and go through the hole to the other side.

When you come to a road turnabout, turn right and follow the road a hundred yards or so. Keep your eyes to the right of the road and look for a little wooden sign. You'll see the trail off the road about 50 feet away.

Always a great trail, especially in Spring/Early Summer when waterfalls are running. Don't let the "rockclimbing" scare you off, it's not that bad.
