Nearby are three spectacular waterfall trails. Spirit Falls is a short 0.4-mile, more difficult hike to a 60’ waterfall. Moon Falls is an easy, 0.5-mile hike to a 125’ cascading waterfall. Pinard Falls is a 0.6-mile, more difficult hike to a 105’ waterfall. All three hikes are within 10 miles of the campground and can be done within a single day. Visitors enjoy taking a picnic lunch and eating at the base of Moon or Spirit Falls at a picnic table made and installed by a modern day CC crew.
