Overview

This out-and-back run is a wonderful option for those looking for a short run to some stunning scenery. Enjoy views of the falls from above and below.

Need to Know

The trail can be quite slippery, so use caution around the falls.

Description

This out-and-back run is only one and half miles if you opt to do the whole thing. From the parking area, take the Moss Glen Falls Trail. There are some boardwalks along the way that will help you keep your feet dry. As you approach the falls, the grade gets a bit steep and can be slippery so watch your footing. Many people opt to head up the creek bed to reach the base of the 3-tier 125-foot falls.

After enjoying some time at the base of the falls, head up the Falls Overlook trail which takes you to some great views of the upper falls and the gorge beyond. Head back the way you came to round out the run.
