Covered Bridge Trail is a spur off the High Falls trail and takes you to the Covered Bridge at the top of High Falls - btw you get a peek of the bridge on your way to the base of High Falls. From the Covered Bridge continue to the fork in the road and stay left down the Buck Forest Road and continue down the hill and take Lake Imaging Road to the left where the sign to Grassy Creek Falls will be immediately on your left. Continue down to the middle of Grassy Creek Falls. Grassy Creek Falls is a large rolling gentle cascade downstream. While not as cool as the other falls in DuPont State Forest, it is much quieter if you want to get away from the crowds.
