Length: 2.9 mi • Est. 1 h 10 m
For most people, the highlight of this hike is the actual Moss Glen Falls, which is only about 1/4 mile from the trailhead. This route is labeled as being "easy", but there is a short steep climb required to get to the best falls viewpoint. The rest of the route follows an old woods road. At about the 1.5 mile mark (just after a wooden bridge), this road turns left and begins a steep ascent, which actually reaches a (viewless) summit after the end of the marked route.Show more
