The start of this hike was to check out the dam removal project. Old River Rd. trail is now a out and back. The Upper Grist Mill trail is CLOSED so NO looping around the top up at Ilchester Rd. For what I have read on the DNR notice is that the trail will be closed for over a year. Since the trail closure, I have noticed more hiker now on the Garrett's Pass. I hiked 5 miles and it was a cool breeze the whole day. I even had a hot lunch at a picnic table by the Swinging Bridge.

One of my favorite sections of the P.V.S.P. - The Cascade Falls and Garrett’s Pass can be a 3 to 4 mile loop or shorter if you like. This entire trail system is marked in (BLUE) expect for Garrett’s Pass which is not marked so you may want to update your map of the New Connecting trails. The trail to the Falls is to the left at the split when you hike up from the parking lot. The Falls is only 3 tenths of a mile if you go this way. The section of the Falls trail is foot traffic only. If you are on Garrett's Pass be sure to share the trail with bikers. It's a very hard ride for them going up and on the downhill’s they are flying.

Beautiful hike with wild flowers and waterfalls but marking are confusing. Be sure to follow AllTrails map. Watch for mountain bikers.
