My favorite hike in the Porkies. The waterfalls are spring fed and cold, perhaps beyond refreshingly cold, but it is a family tradition to jump in the water nonetheless. I have carried my son on this trail in a pack two years in a row and we have brought small dogs on the trail. It is beautiful and varied. From M107 to Trap Falls is 2.4 miles and you can extend the trail further using Lost Lake Trail to go to South Boundary Road (3.8 miles). If you have two cars you can park a car at south boundary and park a return vehicle on M107, hike from south boundary on Lost Lake trail, get to Trap Falls and then hike back out to M107 for a 6.2 mile hike.
