Trail shared by larry huang

A short but rooty/rocky trail with just enough variation for kids to enjoy.

Features River/Creek · Views · Waterfall

Family Friendly This trail is not too long or technical and has great views of waterfalls along the way.

The trail from the upper falls to Wallace Lake is closed until further notice.

Description

This trail can be steep on the way up, so you're in for a leg burner. You'll start the 2.5-mile climb on a trail that heads through evergreen forests, and the dense tree cover is characteristic of the journey. There are a few sections where rocks can be slick when wet, but aside from that, there are few obstacles in your way.

Make sure to stop at each of the three waterfall viewpoints - lower, middle, and upper falls. The falls are all their own scenic viewpoints, but the middle falls have the best panoramic views of the surrounding area.
