Since we got such a late start today in getting out we decided to tackle a short trail not too far from home.  What this trail lacks in length and difficulty it makes up for in convenience and features.  It's got well maintained trails, a decent waterfall and some interpretive markers to provide some insight on the people and wildlife here.

Only saw a few other people on the trail.  Though road noise is pretty prevalent the waterfall downs it all out and we had that to ourselves for some time before we were getting ready to leave.
