Family Friendly This trail makes for an easy hike, and kids will love to play in the small pool at the base of the falls.

Description

This trail presents an easy downhill on the way in. It is wide enough for two people to easily hike side by side. The trail ends at Benton Falls, which is a 65-foot falls with a small, very shallow pool at the bottom. Enjoy lots of mountain flora (rhododendron) along the trail.
