Join Stacy for a steep but beautiful hike

This is one of the prettiest hikes in our region, but is steep with some stairs. I plan to go up the Rim Trail, which has a gentler incline, and back down the Gorge Trail, which has the best views. Distance is 1.5 miles round trip. At the top, there is a flatter area to stroll if we wish. Expected time is about 2 hours. On the way up, there is a place to cross over if we want to shorten the loop.

Not up for a steep climb? The main waterfall offers easy viewing a short, flat walk from the parking lot.

State park entry fee of $9 applies until 6:30 PM.
