This trail is in the NORTHERN set of trails behind WMHT (it is unrelated to the Waterfall Spur Trail also in this park). This trail area traverses a set of cascades and small waterfalls, along with a beautiful 10 foot waterfall. The trail is a loop with significant inclines and declines along with two water crossings which can prove difficult in high water. Much wildlife is in the area including chipmunks, squirrels, and white tailed deer. The loop is well marked with "Red" discs.

This is a very nice place to hike, but be aware of the stream crossing. I hiked this last week clockwise and didn't figure out an easy way across the stream, due to the fact of the downed tree (and ended up bushwhacking my way around a back out). There are multiple trails here as well including a second UNMARKED trail to another set of waterfalls, and a woods road to a steep trail down to trail tracks near the Hudson (no access to the river). Be aware that the trail can be very slippery when wet.
