Climbing the Falls

Trail Thoughts and Musings

Many hikers take this hike and make the mistake of reaching the base of the falls and then returning. The trail leads to the top of the falls as it continues on its way to Paradise Valley. Having made the hike this far, I urge everyone to take the additional effort to see the falls from the top. It is not a hard climb and provides many interesting views of the falls on the way up. Here is one such viewpoint sans the soaking spray.
