This very easy walk on the interpretive trail is perfect for families with small kids. The walk isn't completely novice, so there is enough climbing and rocks to keep everyone interested. The signs tell the geology of the landscape and are really well done. The...More

Wonderful walk, not too strenuous, well guided. We took our Newfound dog which was scary, I was afraid he would jump off a cliff, but the view was extraordinarily beautiful and well worth the hike!

We decided to try out this easy hike to Sterling Falls when we found the Moss Glenn Falls area was crowded with visitors. Sterling Falls Gorge was an easy hike with beautiful views all the way along the trail.

When trying to drive there you'll probably lose cell phone service but, keep going on road, it seems like forever but it's there.  It's a decent gorge.  The "waterfall" is not as good as Moss Glen Falls, but this is better trail overall.  It's an...More

Dogs are everywhere in the area. I saw no signs indicating dogs are not welcome. It's a beautiful spot - enjoy it with your dog.
