Very beautiful for such a short walk out of town! Was a little hard to find as it is on the end of a street in a neighborhood but after that everything was great

Nice open trail with a beautiful waterfall . it's 1.6 round trip, not point to point, so an easy hike for anyone to try.

This is a nice little trail, it's marked wrong on this site, it starts at the end of Marion Avenue, there is barely a parking area and starts basically in someone's back yard, either way if you find it its a beautiful easy out and back trail along the water and the waterfall at the end was gorgeous, saw lots of dogs, I'm not from the area but I bet it's a pretty active swimming hole in the summer time for locals

We loved this trail! It was perfect a perfect hike on a hot summer day. We hiked in (about 40 minutes with young children) and then spent almost 3 hours climbing the rocks and playing at the base of the waterfall.
