This 5.7-mile route includes three singletrack trails that give runners incredible views of the falls from the southwest and views of Chewacla Creek along the way. There are several great spots on the trail that overlook the creek and the falls.
The Lakeside Connector
from the Lower Pavilion is a quick run to the split of the Falls View Trail
and the CCC Trail
. The loop begins here and there are several length options along the route. Falls View Trail
is a great trail, with several views of the falls below the lake's dam. The trail ends at the beginning of the Creek View Trail
This trail follows Chewacla Creek with several rock outcroppings that the trail wind through. There is a short cut out of the woods to the left that provides a shorter option back to the trailhead (stay right on the switchbacks to stay on Creek View). Creek View will terminate after a few miles with the option to return to the trailhead or continue on the CCC Trail
The CCC Trail
makes its way back down to beautiful creek and back up around the CCC campground (NOTE: at mile 4.5 of this run, there is a bridge crossing the creek that connects you to the much longer For Pete's Sake
Trail that has both a 3 mile and 8 mile option). After the bridge, you are just over a mile from the trailhead at the Lower Pavilion. All trails are clearly marked.
Flora & Fauna
Whitetail deer, chipmunks, squirrels.
