The Look: At Cedar Falls, huge hemlocks, a waterfall that is picture-perfect and craggy, beautiful cliffs bring folks back from year to year.
Interesting things to look for: One of the more popular trails is Cedar Falls. Visitors to the trail have said it is like stepping into an enchanted forest. Huge hemlocks, well-worn paths and rugged cliffs line much of the trail.
At one time, a grist mill was located at the top of the falls where a newly constructed bridge now stands. If you look closely at the stream from the bridge, you can see the remnants of the old mill.
Huge snapping turtles live deep in the pool beneath the waterfall. Watch just below the cliff edge, you may see them basking in the early morning sun.
