Arch & Pedestal Rocks, Caves Trail follows an unofficial trail and bushwhack from Richland Creek NF campgrounds to the bluffs deep in the wilderness that contain caves, an arch and Pedestal rocks. Waterfalls and cascades are passed on the way to the caves. The Bluffs containing the caves are about 1 mile past the twin falls. From Twin falls you cross the river below the falls, climb the steep hillside to the right, turn sharp left and cross back over the river above the falls and then follow the ridge line about 1 mile to the bluffs containing the caves. The twin falls you pass on the way are 17' and 19' tall that occur where two creeks merge into one. Richland Falls which is a side trail, is only 6' tall but is one hundred ft. wide. The trail is rugged and quite faint at times. Care must be exercised at the water crossings. The twin falls are fed by wet weather creeks and are best seen in the fall and spring seasons. On the way back their is a short spur that takes you to Richland creek falls.

I honestly loved it. I would love to go back when it's greener or when the leaves are changing in the fall.
