Description

This wonderfully scenic trail is the closest and most accessible to one of the most beautiful falls in the Eastern U.S. While short, the view of the falls is as good as it gets and well worth the time to take a hike!

Flora & Fauna

Mixed hardwoods, plenty of squirrel and chipmunks, woodpeckers and robins galore.
