An easy hike nearly wheel chair accessible. The trail leads to a 100-foot tall intermittent waterfall. The trail is lined with huge boulders, meandering stream, and progressively narrowing canyon becoming more scenic as you progress towards the waterfall.

Pretty little trail. Very flat and easy. It is a wide path, well maintained that extends through a forested canyon to a intermittent waterfall on the far end. The waterfall was and stream was dry when I hiked it, but it was still a very pleasant walk.

Beautiful, easy trail, with great payoff at the end- a beautiful waterfall (note that the falls are rain dependent, so don't count on them if it has been dry). Going slightly off the main trail is very rewarding- you quickly learn how Ferne Clyffe earned it's name.

Gorgeous walk back to the falls. A must do while at the park. Doable by most anyone.
