Easy to moderate hike in a city park. The are several paths to choose from and they lead down to the bridge below the falls. Great free activity! Beautiful waterfall.

This is a wonderful natural area that many residents are completely unaware of. It makes for a spectacular hike any time of year.

This lovely park features a cascading stream exposing rocks, carving chasms in a thickly wooded area. Wood chip trails hug the stream while a paved walking road runs parallel to make this park accessible to all. Occasionally there are wooden benches to pause and enjoy...More
