Points of Interest

1. Start of the hike

Follow the trail sign into the woods. Remember you may lose GPS signal but the trail is very clear to follow.

Head over the amazing suspended bridge and then down the base of the falls. Bring camera, you'll want it!

3. Loop Trail

Here you will have the option to take a longer loop trail through the woods. This will take you past a stand of beautiful birch trees. This adds some elevation to the hike but gives you a different perspective on the way back.
