About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This lovely, short trail rewards you with a unique segmented waterfall.  The trail leads you to the upper viewpoint.

The trail can be a bit tricky to find. It will be across the road from the gravel turnout. There is a small trailhead attached to a tree but it can be easily missed.

Being outside is how I re-charge. It gives me perspective, fills me with gratitude and provides an opportunity to disconnect from the chaos of everyday life. I am fortunate to share this passion with my amazing husband and our son.  I was born and raised in the PNW but I love exploring any area I can get to. One of my favorite things about Hike it Baby is that I have a built in community of friends to provide trail suggestions anywhere we go.
