Need to Know

Park at the small 4-5 car lot to the right just outside of the entrance before the tolls (but still make sure to pay the entrance fee and support the park).

Description

The trailhead is to the left of the toll booths at the Mt. Morris entrance to the park. The first two thirds of the trail is an easy mix of light forest and open air sandwiched between the gorge rim and Park Rd. Yellow blazes are not plentiful, though intersections are marked well with yellow arrows. The last third of the trail is a little more strenuous, forested with elevation changes, overgrowth, and bugs depending on the season.

There are plentiful views of the Mt. Morris Dam and gorge.
