Entering this trail feels like entering a secret garden. The rock shelf on your right shelters the creek bank and trail; it is a shady lush environment. You’ll see trees growing up from the rock ledge, their roots dangling down holding on with hundreds of tiny roots tucked into the rocks. The trail is washed out in places and you have to bushwhack in order to go forward. The trail has a fair bit of deadfall (fallen trees) you must skirt over, under or around. Watch for falling trees. The mosquitoes are bad during the summertime – but nothing a little mosquito spray or net shirt can’t handle!

Disclaimer

Trail impassable due to washout. Closed indefinitely
