Nice hike. Easy waterfall is very nice about half way through the trail off the path slightly. Good for all age levels. Rhododendrons line the paths. Nice and shady and cool. There is also a boulder trail across the street.

What a view from the top, middle and bottom as you scamper among the rock ledges along the trail that leads from the road to alongside Hawk Falls. 'So amazing for city people and lovers of the woods. Relatively short, downhill trail to get there,...More
