“An out-and-back trail that follows a creek between two waterfalls.”— Scho Wolers
Family Friendly The trail itself is relatively easy, but children will love the waterfalls (especially Blue Hen, which is easier to get close to).
Although the area is heavily wooded, minimal elevation change makes the trail quite doable for groups with children. However, recent flood damage has made the trail easy to lose in certain spots. After an easy crossing (the creek never gets deeper than a 1/2 foot or so), the trail will terminate at the foot of Buttermilk Falls, a less-renowned but much taller waterfall than Blue Hen. For the most impressive views of the falls, go right after heavy rainfall!
