Great trail off blackwater falls. We started at Cabin 13 and walked it down to Elakala trail that leads to Blackwater lodge. Neat rock structure, moderate hike, few little streams along the way.

Within a series of trails at blackwater falls. Very beautiful in the snow. The lodge/convention center near the trail also has a restaurant.

Nice little out and back hike... Interesting vegetation, beautiful forest. Won't rock your world or anything but nice little relaxing hike in a beautiful, easily accessible area.
