    Nancy said: this hike is very nice, it should be mentioned that in order to progress from Middle falls to lower falls there are 2 creeks that need to be crossed one of them has large rocks that help you forge the trail but the second one has nothing and you will get your boots wet. I felt it was worth the crossing for the solitude and peace. at the end of the lower falls trail you join up with the horse trail and unfortunately don't get much information to continue the hike. We brought lunch and it was very enjoyable.
