We shall hike c. 2.4 miles with approx. 60 mins of hiking. Following a 30 minute drive, we hike to the top of the falls which is about a 30 minute hike. En route we discover plant life in the region and watch & listen for wildlife. At the summit we will marvel at the beauty of the falls and enjoy a continental breakfast (sitting on rocks or on the side, there are no picnic tables/chairs). It's beautiful & rustic, as mother nature intended! Bring a camera, there are lots of things along the way in addition to the falls. Wear sneakers/hiking boots and dress in layers. It can start out much colder in the morning. Guests should be in good physical shape and able to hike at a steady pace of 3 miles per hour at a constant incline for 1.2 miles in each direction. There will be a brook to cross over and a few rocky areas. Hiking poles are provided for your convenience. If you book a single traveler rate and another person books onto the tour, we will refund you the difference in cost.
