beautiful creek, 30 ft waterfall, close to home, easy hike Christman Sanctuary is a nature preserve that protects part of the Bozen Kill creek. Along the creek there are a series of small waterfalls and cascades. From the parking area, follow the trail through the field to the sign-in register just inside the forest. Continue left on the trail with blue markers which will take you down to the creek. After about 1/2 mile, if the creek is low enough, you can cross and follow the Plantation Trail. It is best to follow this loop trail (marked with orange) in a clockwise direction. The blue trail continues along the creek to a T-intersection. Go straight ahead and then down some steps. You will soon reach the base of the 30 foot waterfall. This is a nice picnic spot with a lean-to. To return, retrace your steps to the T-intersection. Take a left and follow the trail back to the register.

As 5/15/17 still soggy paths, thankful for planks on some of the paths. Could use better trail markings, especially in your descent out of the trails.

Nice hike, really a shame people have done graffiti on the trees and broke the glass over the map at the start of the trail. I went on a Monday and the trail was slightly crowded.

Great peaceful local hike, views of the water falls are excellent, this hike can be done by almost anyone. Its a perfect location to test out snowshoeing as well because of the slight up and downs. I would also like to point out that this Sanctuary does not allow pets, meaning NO DOGS. As a pet owner myself I like to bring my dog hiking as much as possible but understand the reasoning behind not allowing pets, especially in a nature sanctuary.
