Description

The trail starts on an old forest road and a short distance later turns right into the forest. The path is mostly level and at 0.3 miles comes to the rim of the small gorge the Lower Cascades are located. The trail then follows boardwalks, wooden steps and some steps to the bottom of the gorge and the plunge pool of the Lower Cascades.
