The Look: At Cedar Falls, huge hemlocks, a picture-perfect waterfall, and craggy 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 an A-frame bridge now stands. Look for the grist mill stone at the steps that was used to grind corn to make flour. If you look closely at the stream from the bridge, you can see the remnants of the old mill.

Length: The path is approximately a 1/2 mile long with steps. It is a one-way trail system with a waterfall, bridges, and unique rock formations.
