Quick loop through a historic natural rock formation that has been used as shelter by Native Americans. Fun little wooden bridges on the path cross over the creeks below. Educational and great for children.
Since the flood in 2013 the bridge is closed and part of the trail. It is still a good short hike to see the ledge.
It was a super easy and quick hike with the kids. What was most special is the breathtaking views. Every turn we took there was something else to see. Loved the cave, loved the white rock, and especially loved the waterfalls!
Excellent easy trail with historical stops. I remember as a kid when the water was flowing and you could hike and swim.
Quick easy loop thats great for children and scouts! Little wooden bridges crosses over creeks and leads to a rock formation that have been used in centuries past as shelter by the Native Americans. Educational and informative. Bring the map with you so you don't accidentally return on the Picnic trail- the trails cross and run parallel.
