Description

This is the main trail for many headed to High Falls and Two Step Falls. This trail meanders through the forest with numerous stairs and steps. It is hard to notice when this trail turns from High Falls to the SHT since that section of the SHT is maintained to the same quality as the High Falls Trail. No need to worry about getting lost—this trail is heavily traveled.

Flora & Fauna

Enjoy a pleasant forest with forest critters like chipmunks and woodpeckers.
