This is a pretty local walk. The air was heavily scented with wild roses, and there was much wildlife along the way. I'd highly recommend it for a beginner.

This is a relatively easy hike (very short) to the falls, part of the AT, so it can be as long as you want to make it. The falls are small (35 feet or so) and active in spring. Can be nearly totally dry in...More

Quick easy little hike. I've been here in the spring and the falls are spectacular. This time of year it's pretty dry. The path of the AT was moved a few years ago to a drier route. You can still see where the old path...More

From Rt 17M, the trail to the falls is approximately 5 miles south on Lakes Rd (like you're going to Greenwood Lake). You will know you're getting close when you pass the Windridge Mews townhouse complex. You will pass... More
