Description

The trail starts out in sagebrush/grass area, and winds through coniferous forest and quaking aspen stands. Once out of the trees and the sagebrush flat, visitors can look up right and possibly see mountain goats on the rocky cliffs. Once back in the trees, the roar of the falls can now be heard. The trail ends at a redwood deck with a built picnic table and two benches, making it a nice spot for a picnic.

This trail was designed for use by wheelchairs, but is NOT an easy trail. The surface of the trail is crushed gravel, not pavement, and has two stretches of 5 % grade. As such, the trail is of moderate difficulty for wheelchairs.
