The beautiful, 55 foot tall Sturtevant falls is a wonderful place to mingle with other hikers and enjoy the flowing, rainbow-casting, misty falls.
Children especially love this part of the hike because it is a big reward for a little bit of work. Keep an eye on them, however, due to some steep parts of this area where the water flows.
You'll notice to the left of the falls a large, steep hill with signs that say "No Shortcutting"—these are there for your safety, please obey them. The shortcutting refers to the lower trail (top of the falls) which resides directly above this area.
At this point, if you came up for a short hike up to the falls, then you can simply turnaround and follow the trail from where you came. However, if you are taking the journey of the loop, then go back to the junction for the upper and lower trail and follow the lower trail (top of the falls).
