This is a great trail for all. Featuring a few small water crossing and Cascade Water Falls.
This trail has a few boulders to go over up near the falls. Beware of the weather because of water flow. Well-maintained trails system, which is all marked (BLUE). There is access to this trail system from two locations. You can park at the Orange Grove area by the Swinging Bridge or up top of the valley at Landing Rd. The Root/ball trail is (Closed). An updated trail map will show you the NEW TRAIL (Garrett Pass). I added a recording of this trail. Check out Garrett’s Pass via Cascade Falls. Away great to have trekking poles, hiking stick and a good pair of boots.
