A moderately difficult 0.75-mile hike that begins a Deer Ridge Campground and also leads to the waterfall

Loved. this trail. We went off track and climbed up the gorge to the top of the bluff and down the waterfall. Although short it was like a real hike rather than just a trail walk. Would totally recommend but don't stay on the wide trails scramble over the rocks.

This was a great trail, easy if you stayed on the wide path but you can go off and climb around on the rocks some too which was fun. There were many people with dogs and strollers as it was a well maintained path. At the beginning of the trail there is a picnic area where we had lunch. There are also latrines (bathrooms that don't flush), so bring your hand wipes and you'll be all set! The short distance provides a pretty waterfall, not very big when we were there but it was still worth it. We went in April and it was the perfect temperature. Have a great time!

Beautiful views main trail of the park. Wide, gravel, with wooden bridges. Careful of climbing waterfall rocks are slippery.
