Description

This short spur trail is located on the right at about the 0.5 mile mark of Waterfall Loop Road and Waterfall Loop Nature Trail. It is a wooded trail that initially makes a short climb and then levels out. Continuing on, one rounds a bend to see Black Rock Falls. Picking your way over the rocks, you can admire the falls from a closer vantage point.

Flora & Fauna

Lush dense woods and creekside vegetation.
