This is definitely one of my favorite trails since the 1980s. I love the waterfalls in the general area, and it's always provided such peace, respite and tranquility for me
Before you start your trek, cross the bridge from the parking lot and enjoy the history and the views of the expansive waterfalls! When you return to the parking lot walk to the far northern end to start the Rhodo Trail. There, the path is about 10-15' wide and is shared with Mountain bikes. The trail gradually climbs for a mile and you can continue on the Rhodo trail or turn right on to the Rocky trail where you have to option of several loops ranging from 3 to 6 + mile loops.
