Hiking distance: 2 miles round trip

Description: The trail leads to three cascades and starts at the top of the first falls. The trail down is easy, but the trail back up can be quite steep. However, hikers may choose to visit only one or two of the cascades.

Footnote: The Chinquapin Mountain trail also is located in this area, so pay attention to signs.
