A trail with great views of the waterfall from the top side.

Features River/Creek · Waterfall

Description

This trail takes you from the Deer Ridge Campground parking area then leads around the topside of the waterfall. There are parts of this section of trail where you'll want to run deeper into the woods to cross rock fissures. These fissures range in size from a few inches to a few feet wide. When wet, the rocks are very slippery, and this trail runs along the edge of the bluffs; please exercise caution.
