Rowland's Creek Falls is the main attraction of this circuit, but the entire multi-use trail offers challenge and striking scenery including bubbling mountain streams. The Falls are the result of water flowing some 150 feet down a hard layer of rock. The trail is moderately difficult and blazed in orange.
