This short hike follows a paved trail downhill and around to an overlook of the Shepperd's Dell Waterfalls. One interesting point of this hike is the outstanding view you get of the old original bridge they built over this creek.

In season, which is spring to fall, there are alot of beautiful wildflowers along all of the gorge trails. Below is a photo of the evasive flower Robert Geranium.
