The Ben Utter Trail follows the beginnings of Wood River as it traverses over Stepstone Falls. Along the trail, you will see remnants of an old mill foundation, the falls, and the restored CCC Picnic Pavilion. Adding in the River Trail makes a nice loop, gets you closer to the falls, and allows you to see remnants of an old quarry. The North South Trail also shares the same route in this area. The southern portion of Ben Utter Trail is for hikers only; however, a parallel trail helps bikers detour around that portion.
