    Route Description for Deception Falls Interpretive Trail

    The trail begins from a clean, free parking area off the highway. There is a good picnic area and some passable restrooms. You can do the loop either way, and it’s nearly impossible to get lost. Walking clockwise, you’ll loop to the Tye River. The first viewpoint is of the falls at the river.

    Continue around the trail, where a second viewpoint is available on your left. Complete the hike by following the river back down to the picnic area and parking lot. Interpretive signs share information about the falls and park, so take a minute to read them before setting up your picnic or hopping back into the car.
