About 1/3 of a mile from the trailhead, the trail splits to form the loop. This loop trail passes by 2 large train trestles that are still operational, but please stay off of the tracks. You will soon pass by an old set of stone steps, these steps lead downhill to remnants of an old spring house near the creek below. This was used as a stopping place for carriages in the 19th century. After about a mile you will come to the Tioga Falls, which is actually a series of falls, or even a cascade if the water flow is light. From top to bottom, the Falls are about 130 feet high. At this point the trail turns and loops back to the trailhead. The lower portion of the loop follows Tioga Creek, for approximately 1/2 mile. The trail soon reconnects, leading back to the parking area.

good trail, make sure you wear good shoes, mostly up hill.

The beginning of the trail leads you to a trail closure but do not fret, simply follow the detour signs! The hike is beautiful and very easy. The greenery and birds lead you to escape the city. The gorgeous hike leads to a breathtaking waterfall. Worth it!

Very easy trail. Lots of rocks so wear good shoes! Worth the small hike! Use the detour trail since the main trail is closed off! There are signs for it just head towards the first sign down the road till you see the next sign :) happy trails !
