Lovely little hike down and following the falls. It is a little hard to find, dirt road, few signs but a nice 1 hour side trip. You can hike other areas there as well. Very lovely with the fall colours.

Dogs are everywhere in the area. I saw no signs indicating dogs are not welcome. It's a beautiful spot - enjoy it with your dog.
