Most of the trail is flat, but often very rocky, making it difficult to breeze along. In addition, it often appears to peter out, which may lead to moments of backtracking to make sure you didn’t miss anything. This is most problematic when the trail turns nearly to all rock, making it harder to follow the path as compared to when it is cut through the dirt. As a rule of thumb, as long as you are hiking along the river (far below), you are on the Martha’s Falls Trail . Parking is available off Highway 35, near Road 861.
