Description

The first 1/3 mile are ADA accessible but not ADA grade. The woods on this trail are partially old growth and some newer growth. The trail begins wide and very easy with signage along the route about local plants and about the area. It then crosses a small bridge and begins its gradual decent into a spring fed creek. This official trail terminates and a beautiful small waterfall that flows nearly year round. There is a great area to get your feet wet and let children play in the cool waters.
