My hikes are more leisurely....with plenty of breaks for water and snacks....if you are fast hiker and wants to hike fast, this may not be the hike for you.
Ravens Cliff Falls are a wonder to behold, and the hike in is almost equally as stunning. The path begins as a wide road near the junction of Dodd and Bear Den Creek. The first 100 yards of the path is essentially a service road for these spots. The trail closely follows Dodd Creek up to the falls. On the path several additional waterfalls add to the pleasure of this hike. The forest is dominated by hardwoods. Short cascades and riplets of whitewater produce a relaxing gurgle during a significant portion of the hike. The approach to the Cliffs is the highlight of the trip. A quick climb and loud noise impart the message of the approaching waterfall. The water rushes through a split in the rocks and splashes down in cascades to the bottom. Typical of high forest falls, water flow is heavy only in the spring, but somehow the way the cliff is shaped makes these falls seem strong most of the year. A short path leads to the top of falls.
