Description [Suggest Changes]

Begin this run on Old Route 9W a little north of Point Lookout, where the Long Path (aqua markers) heads into the woods. Stay on the Long Path headed north. In about half a mile, the Long Path turns right (east) near the state line border monument, then left (north) to go through a gate in a fence. The trail then descends on steep stone steps. Just beyond “High Gutter Point” (this is the point where you can see sweeping views to the north) are more steep steps. Be sure to bring your camera for a great view at "High Gutter Point"!

Use caution and take your time on the steps to the bottom. At the bottom of the steps, the trail turns left (west). In about 0.8 miles, the trail crosses a stream. After you cross the stream, turn right (east). This is the start of the Shore Trail (white markers). Follow the Shore Trail to the river and Peanut Leap Cascade. Sections are rocky and the final descent is steep—use caution! Enjoy the nice view of the cascade for a while, then return via the same route.
