The carpool will leave promptly at 8:30 am and the hike at Raven Cliff Falls Trailhead will begin  at 10:15 am. We should be back at the Mansell Park n Ride around 3:30pm.

This hike is NOT for Beginniers! We will stop breifly at the falls to take a few pictures.

The Raven Cliff Trail is 2.5 miles  (5 miles round trip) and follows a beautiful, rushing trout stream in a shady, moss-filled forest which ends at Raven Cliff Falls. There are many 'small tralls’ along the way and we will stop periodically to enjoy them. 

We will have lunch at the Falls for 20-30 minutes. After lunch we’ll hike back to the cars and drive to the Dukes Creek Falls parking lot. (5 minute car ride)

The hike to Duke Creek Falls is 1 mile (2 miles round trip} with a 400 foot decent to the base of the falls overlook. The view of this 150 foot waterfall is breathtaking. 

Elevation between the two trails will be about 875 feet with a distance of 7 miles.  

There are vault toilets at both locations, but no fresh water.


There is no parking fee at Raven, but there is a $5 fee at Dukes.
