There are a few access points to this preserve. On Sunday 11/27 I decided to try the lower section from the lot at Lower Gregg Road, just above the fork with East Gregg Road. This parking lot was very quiet and felt like a different place than when I have used the Mariaville Road and Coplon Road entrances. The lower part of the preserve may not have waterfalls as spectacular as the upper section, but it does have some really beautiful cascades and smaller falls that are worth checking out. In a couple of locations we followed yellow trails down to the stream bed and were not disappointed. One even led to a seasonal side stream that had a waterfall flowing and there was a small cascade on the main Plotter Kill right next to it. It was just my boyfriend and me enjoying this lovely spot, probably because it is remote and was in late November. If you want a more peaceful experience, definitely consider visiting the lower part of the preserve.
beautiful hike, great views, a bit hard in certain areas and trails in some parts not well marked can get turned around easily, we brought our three children and our small dog for most of the hike it was great but a few areas made it very difficult with lil ones, I would say this area is more for adults and avid hiking.
