Points of Interest

1. Marshall's Hill Trail

The start to the Indian Trail begins after the Red Town Trail. There are several branches to the trailhead, you can take a short detour down the meadow restoration loop or a short distance away, begin down the Marshall's Hill Trail.

2. De Leo Wall Trail

From here you can access the De Leo Wall Trail. You can add an extra 2.5 miles to your hike if you choose to hike the De Leo Wall/Marshall's Hill Trail loop. There is a great view about 3/4 of a mile down the De Leo Wall Trail.

3. Stone Steps leading to Falls

There is no marker for the waterfalls but you should see a path leading to these stone steps. The Far County Falls are less than 100 meters from the stone stairs.

4. Falls in January

Depending on which month you hike the trail, the falls could be just a trickle or large cascading falls. I suggest hiking the trail in the spring time after a few days of heavy rain.

5. Low Waterfall

Here is what the Far County Falls look like during the dry seasons.

6. Falls after Heavy Rain

I took this picture in January after it had been raining for 2 weeks straight. It was a record rainfall that month.

7. Far County Trail Junction

A short hike after the Far County Falls detour, you will come to the Far County Trailhead. The trail is short but steep, leading up to a great viewing area near the top.

8. Trailhead Marker from 171st cul-de-sac

This is the best parking area if you are looking for a short hike to see the Far County Falls. There is always parking along the side of the road even during the busiest seasons.
