“An easy-moderate loop through beautiful woodlands, with a slight detour to view the waterfall.”— Joy R
All trails are well-marked with clear markers at trail junctions.
Take the Narrows Ridge Main Loop which heads west; where it splits, stay left to continue southwest, paralleling the ridgeline, climbing a gentle grade. Cross the Thompson Trace trail (blue blazes) as you head north and cross the Hanby Hollow trail (yellow blazes). At the next junction with the Hanby Hollow trail, take a left to follow it down to the waterfall. There will be two spots along the trail where you can veer onto the yellow trail; I recommend the second yellow junction (the sound of the waterfalls will be audible before reaching this point) in order to maximize your time on the red trail, which is a more challenging hike.
After taking in the waterfall, head back the way you came and head back to the red trail (Narrows Ridge trail). Follow the Narrows Ridge Main Loop as it loops around back to the original split in the trail. Turn left and head back to the parking area. From here cross the road and take the Narrows Ridge East Loop which is located just a bit to the right. Take the trail out to the loop, follow it either direction, and then head back the way you came.
