The trail starts opposite the eastern end of the Looking Glass Rock Overlook at mile 417.0. Take a left at the junction with the Mountains-To-Sea Trail. It is a short and beautiful trail through the woods down to a very pretty waterfall with a couple small pools. I would like to come back with the family in the summer to see if I can convince them to go swimming.

The falls and pools are the highlight of the hike and would be fun with kids.
