Follows a disused water line up the mountainside to and past Dry Falls. The name is mostly apt, though after sustained periods of rain they do flow, adding several challenging stream crossings to the trail. Very runnable from Three Caves up to a bit past Wagon Trail, with a surprisingly even gradient; while some larger rocks are present, this lower section is not technical. Once you approach the falls, however, the trail pitches up sharply and becomes more uneven, eventually requiring some scrambling in the section above the falls.
