Great short hike that's easily accessible and not at all aggressive. You'll have some great views up top and abundant Flora and Fauna along the way. Make sure to view the map at the beginning as you'll run into numbers intersections after you descend from the first summit. There is a map post afterwards, but it's always best to know where you're going ahead of time.
Things to look out for:
-Ticks, don't be a hero - use bug spray. Good bug spray - My daughter has Lyme disease, you don't want it.
-Ice in the winter - grab a cheapo pair of crampons, yaktrax, or micro spikes from a local or online retailer. It'll make the ice grip like dry rock for about $20. Hike all winter without risking cracking your head open.
Short distance to the Falls. Good for changing air.
Easy to get to and not to crowded. Map station not too far from the entrance. Hiking wasn't to challenging but still had to put some work in. Great views along the way.
Fun trail. You'll get to the waterfall after a 5 minute hike.
