A Rise To The Falls
The trail to the falls is only about 1.5 miles long, but it is an uphill trek to keep you honest. The trail is mostly dirt--not rocky--and meanders along the side of a hill with plenty of trees providing shade and within close distance to the creek. There are a couple nice bridges to cross different parts of the creek, as well as some steeper sections to hike up. There are plenty of benches along the way for rests if necessary, and there is even a picnic area closer to the end of the trail with two picnic tables.
The trail is fairly popular. I saw several other people on trail, and there is plenty of other evidence that the trail is well used such as many of the trees and benches having initials carved in them. Despite this, the trail is still well worth the hike since the falls truly are relaxing and beautiful. It is a steep, rocky falls with a relaxing flow rather than an abrupt drop. There is also a steep walkway with a handrail to walk up along the side of the falls to see a higher section.
