    Route Description for North Drywood Falls Trail

    The hike starts off on an old gravel road which is great for strollers or bikes at first, but as you get closer to the falls it becomes a single track trail so a stroller likely isn’t going to be easy to get through.

    Keep in mind, this trail is a slow and steady incline up the entire way to the falls. It’s consistent with no flat spots. Pincher Ridge will be visible to your right and then your left for the duration of the hike. Enjoy the falls before returning the way you came.
