If you can't handle a lot of miles like this recorded track then start at the Swinging Bridge and just hike the large loop. It's easy for all. Featuring the Cascade Falls and a few small Water Crossings. It's Well-maintained and the trees are marked There is access to this trail system from two locations. Orange Grove/Avalon at the Swinging Bridge or from the top of the valley at Landing Rd. When breaking off the Cascade trail watch carefully for the Lewis & Clark Connector. I have known of people missing it and ending up at Landing Rd. The Old Track loop, Old Connector and Ridge Trail are fairly flat and easy. This loop is one of my favorites. Be sure to checkout the Garrett's Pass Via Cascade Falls Loop Trail I recently created and added to All/Trails. It's runs the opposite side of the Cascade Falls from this.
