I love this trail. I do it every year. I like to start at the beginning where the river comes out of the spring. The water is so clear and pure it is well worth the trip.

We took a picnic and ate on the grass by the waterfall located on the Falls River Trail. The waterfall is located somewhat near the fish hatchery off of a dirt trail.

Hiking along the Fall River is a beautiful experience. The trail is fairly easy with beautiful views of the River. We hiked from the river's headwaters for about 2 miles out and then back.
