“A peaceful hike through reclaimed farmlands, ending at stunning views of Sandstone Falls.”— Hunter R
Family Friendly This hike's gentle grades, manageable length, and spectacular views make it a wonderful option for families with children.
Upon reaching the junction with the Sandstone Falls Boardwalk, head south across a wooden bridge onto an island situated in the middle of the New River. Follow the boardwalk to its end, at which point visitors can expect fantastic views of Sandstone Falls.
After enjoying the falls, return along the boardwalk to the junction with the Island Loop Trail, heading west to return to the parking area.
