High Falls is a gorgeous fall (about 200 ft) located below Big Scaly and near Standing Indian Mountain. This is a great opportunity to see and enjoy its beauty and surroundings. Also if you want you can hike to Standing Indian summit (5,499 ft).
The total distance hiked depends on you and can vary between 8 to 15 miles. From the trailhead to High Falls is 2.3 miles one way. From High Fall to campsite is around 2 miles. from campsite to cars is around 5 miles. We camp near the trail that goes to Big Scaly.
After getting to our campsite everyone is free to explore. Or you can gather firewood and enjoy a relaxing day next to the campfire. I am planning to hike to Standing Indian and explore some trails.
If the weather is nice We won't leave before 11. Bring lunch or snacks for after breakfast.
We can stop for lunch at Clayton. If you prefer not to, arrange this at the carpool on Saturday morning, and bring enough food to sustain you until later Sunday afternoon.
We have three dogs that accompany us on this trip
