“A steep trek into the Palisades waterfall ravine with a mile ascent back to an overlook.”— Carol Christensen
Once at the bottom of the ravine, turn right to see the waterfall or left to continue north along the bottom of the ravine. The trail crosses the stream several times and there are logs and rocks to help keep feet dry. Once the trail crosses the creek at the northernmost end of the trail, it begins an ascent to the east side of the ravine.
This section of trail offers a mild incline with well defined tread. There are several other trails that connect with this one. Keep going south, up the hill until you reach a large bench cut from a mammoth tree. There's a modest overlook of the waterfall and you can either reconnect with the parking area, Trail 102 - South Trail Green Loop, or Trail 120 - Indian Meadow Loop.
