Comments
Comments: Easy, relaxing hike down a narrow draw to the Falls Brook Falls in the "middle of nowhere-ville." Must pay attention to footing, though - dry leaves on rocks are not a good combination. The falls are frozen over but still photogenic and streamflow is low due to the recent drought conditions. I saw no other hikers. Basically had the place to myself. Check out the video link below, if interested.
