Mason Mill Park consists of a 30-acre riverside park in which there are picnic pavilions, playground, restrooms, boat dock, hiking trail, fire pit, porch swings, and scenic views. The view of Bull Sluice Lake in the morning is goregous as well as the landscapes of Overlook Park.  

We'll walk through several of the trails at Morgan Falls.  The mountain trail is a given, but there are other trails to explore so that we can extend this to a decent D2 hike.  Some of the areas might be a bit technical, so be warned!  

Please pay careful attention to the directions.  We will NOT be parking at the Morgan Falls Park lot, but instead will be gathering near the hydroelectric plant where the Morgan Falls Dam is.  

Bathrooms are available at the Morgan Falls lot, which we'll be passing as we hike.

No parking fee!
