A sign marks the trailhead and tree limbs line the trail to guide you through a lowland area and onto a wooded hillside. When you reach the bridge above the waterfall, you can cross and return the way you came.

Short loop off of the Sandhills Trail near the dam area. Trail is not marked; easiest way to find it is to look for the large information sign downhill from the Sandhills Trail just west of the dam. Interesting interpretive signs tell about common flora and fauna of the midlands. Overall, a nice add-on if you are hiking the Sandhills Trail.

Less crowded trail. Some areas are not well marked but it’s well traveled so it was easy to stay on course. We enjoyed the informational signs.
