Places We Want To Go Map

Quick hike to a large waterfall, great place to take a family. There is also a small cave on the other side of the water at the falls!

The trail is definitely more of a mountain biking trail. It’s not very well maintained and it’s so narrow I was paranoid about the idea of encountering other hikers or bikers. The trail is incorrectly described as a loop, as it ends in a weird place, which forces you to cut across a bunch of athletic fields (not a good time when every field is being used for soccer practice).

Great bike ride! We took our kids and they are not strong bikers, but had a great time. Heard the frogs, saw the woodpeckers and the swamps. A little crowded on a Saturday in March, but still room to ride. Decent elevation changes for controlled coasting and mild hill climbs.

Great for dogs

Great trail

It was an easy hike and a great adventure for my 4 year old. Well maintained and dog friendly.

Great trail with a beautiful waterfall.

Great hike. Will definitely do again when the water is lower.

Easy walk up to a pretty waterfall. We went off to the left to look for the mine. That made it even better for us.

A lot of litter and some idiot with unleashed dogs other than nice trail. Will do again and next time bring a bag to pickup litter

Rode my bike from 64th street entrance to Shore Drive entrance and back ... roughly 7 miles ... nice smooth trail ...

A nice quick hike!

Very nice trail, always see people on it but it's never too crowded. Saw a bald eagle first time on this trail so I'll definitely be back!

Trails are great. To bad we went after a week of rain so most of them were washed out. Would definitely go back and try again on a more dry week. Lots for the family to see. My little girl loved it and had a blast.

This trail was so nice, even on a cloudy day like it was. Not too many people considering it was a Saturday, and we only went a little while down. My friend and I brought our dogs too, and they loved it! I loved the part with the little bridge path!

Quick hike to a great waterfall! Worth the trip.

Loved this! Very doable even for people who are out of shape aka me

Wide path for pups and others to pass

The falls were really cool and peaceful

It was a cold day so for us this distance was perfect!

Trails are closed from Nov. 1 - March 31. The beach is still open and the loop at the very beginning, but no real trails during that period.

Beautiful hike. I didn’t like walking on the gravel road for possibly a mile? The cascades/falls are small and pretty. Thanks Toby Brennan for helping with the blazes. I took a picture of your comments Incase if no reception and did refer to them on the trail. All Trails map kept me in the trail. There is water for dogs in the middle of the hike as you walk along the creek.

Quit crying about the litter and do something about it. It’s a free park. Do your part !!! We all need to do our part keeping trails clean.


It was not the hardest hike I've ever done but will be one of my favorites. The falls were beautiful. The hike to the falls was easy to follow and there were many little trails around the falls to explore the falls in more detail. Once we crossed over to continue on the trail it became difficult to follow. We did a lot of bushwacking and stayed close to the trail only because of the alltrails map. With this being said, it was a lot of fun. We were determined to find a place to cross back once we saw the trail continuing on the other side. We did have to get creative and had to go below the trail to find a place to cross. We walked, climbed,scooted across a couple fallen logs with the water rushing under our feet and then jump across another rock. We thought it was a blast but might would be too difficult for someone older or without good balance. Once we reached the other side the trail was easy to follow the rest of the way with a gradual incline. This will definitely become a regular hike and possible camping spot.

Short, easy hike. Very pretty long narrow falls.

I give it a five because of the great waterfall views. There are at least six great locations on the trail. The trail is difficult to follow and we got lost at least three times but worth the trouble.

trails were not marked very well at all and trash everywhere. not a trail i would do again

Nice short hike and falls can seen from 3 separate vantage points. The scenery makes it well worth it

Great waterfalls. Unusually swift water made crossing the trail challenging today. Terrain can be slick so proper footwear is a plus.

Excellent hole through the woods... until you have to circle back around across soccer fields, next time I go we’ll turn around at the fields and just back so we can stay in the woods.

I did this hike early morning and really enjoyed it. You can hear the traffic on 181 when you first start out but you diverge from the highway soon. There is lots to explore on the rocks along the river. The hike down is easy and the climb back up isn't too strenuous, but there are lots of rocks and roots along the way. Some people have been making their own trail straight up the mountain causing erosion, try to stay to the switchbacks.
