“This short, steep trail leads to a beautiful waterfall tucked beneath the rocky cliffs.”— Jake Bramante
Family Friendly Although it's steep, it's short and leads to a great waterfall.
The trail begins level, then steeply climbs through a forest, popping out at the base of the cliffs where the waterfall pours over as a stream of water. Turn around and enjoy the view of Lake Sherburne, Cracker Flats and the surrounding peaks. A little scrambling can bring you right up to the waterfall.
