Trail shared by Juliette P

Falls Road serves as a great way to connect hiking-specific tracks between the Rhododendron Garden and Olinda Falls.

Family Friendly Kids can certainly handle this road, but they should be mindful of cars and stay close to you.

Watch out for cars along this road, as it is open to vehicle traffic.

Description

While this is a paved route that's open to cars, it's one of the only ways to connect visitors from the Olinda Falls area to the National Rhododendron Garden without heading on a winding detour through the park. It might not be your favorite "trail" in the park, but you can still enjoy pleasant forested surroundings as you make your way through a slightly residential area.
