    Royce Russell reviewed Ramsey Cascades Trail

    Splendid short drive in on the gravel road. Then a pretty easy 1.5 mile walk into the trail on a wide gravel trail to the more pedestrian trail. The footpath then becomes a bit more fun. Roots and rocks demanded that we have decent footwear, up 2.5 more miles along some exceptional old growth forest trails. Much to admire on the way up to the 100 foot falls. Even in the super dry season we’ve had. There was still water cascading down to play on. Not a hike for the amateur, but worth the effort

    Another excellent spot to walk a bit up a paved well maintained trail. Very steep. To have a chance to see spectacular views. It is hit and miss because of the clouds. Just sit and wait a while, they clear up sometimes.

    My 17 year old daughter and I hiked this on a 55 degree October day. We only had water and a snack bar, but loved the challenging distance. We are in decent shape, but don’t hike very often. It took us about 3.5 hours to go up and 2.5 to come down. I defiantly want to try it again with my lovely wife and spend a few nights up to at the rustic cabins in the absolute quiet and cloudy top.
