It would be hard to find a better spring hike than this one. For wildflower lovers, this is it. There’s fringed phacelia, bishop’s cap, several trillium and violet species, mayapple, blue cohosh, geranium, Fraser’s sedge, toothwort and phlox. If the flowers aren’t enough, there’s Fern Branch Falls, a surprisingly high waterfall which tumbles over mossy rocks and logs.
