Description

This trail runs from the fork at Cartaway and Trillium Trail through the Banning State Park campground and to Wolf Creek Falls. The terrain is easy until you get closer to the falls. Then it turns into wonderful smooth rock where some easy scrambling may be involved.

This is a really neat trail, mostly easy walk in the woods kind of stuff but towards the end when you get close to the falls there is a pretty rock…
