The Cliff Trail Loop: 3 Miles – Start at the upper trailhead lot. The trail will split a couple times and you’ll want to bear left, following the signs that point you down the Cliff Trail. You’ll climb a bit to a rock promontory that gives you beautiful views of the valley below. You will begin a descent to the creek bed, then the trail will turn and head upstream. Follow it until you hear the falls. After the falls, follow the trail back up to the upper lot.

Summary: This hike is great for dogs. In unincorporated Jefferson County, there is a leash law. There were, however, lots of happy dogs on the trail. Plenty of tree shade along the way. A good portion of the trail has a creek running along side. Great for the dogs and the "stop to smell the roses" hikers. There is a nice view at the falls. A great place to sit and relax. Well worth the hike!

Volunteers for carpooling are always appreciated-please post if you are interested in carpooling. Please remember cash for your drivers gas/mileage. Thank you!!

Trailhead: Travel to Evergreen on rte 74. Take rte 73 about a mile to brook forest rd. Travel about 3.6 miles to a parking lot on your left. The GPS co-ords are Lat[masked] by Log[masked] (Lat:[masked] Lon:[masked])
