This is a long trail for little ones with all of the inclines, and it was very steep at the end of the trail, so you definitely need a hiking stick and a sturdy pair of shoes. We had a wonderful time, but the waterfall was only a slight trickle as there had not been much rain in the area. I imagine it would be incredible in the spring and fall.

challenging but quick trail, if you start at the cabins then you will encounter the most elevation gain quickly for almost 1 mile, for a more steady incline I'd start clockwise, there is a nice rock formation at the very top to climb over and explore, we did it after much rain so there was debris and some mud, trail is clearly marked and only took us an hour

The first bit of the trail is probably the worst because it was very steep, muddy, and there was a tree down about halfway up the hill. After that, most of the trail has a much gentler incline. There were a few fallen trees that we had to climb over as well. About an hour into hiking the trail, you can take a small detour down another steep hill to Tenskwatawa falls. There's a small cave behind the falls, so it served as a nice spot to take a break and watch the water.

Great trail to warm up on. Trail is actually 0.5 miles and takes about 30 minutes to complete. Lots of cool rocks to look at and climb around. There were a few tricky places where we had to cross a few small streams, but overall pretty cool. We even got to watch a deer give birth on this trail!
