Kanarraville Falls Trail - Difficulty: Moderate

This is one of my personal favorite hikes. It`s a perfect hike when the summer heat is getting to you. Be warned, This is a water hike and you cannot avoid getting wet if you want to see the sights this trail has to offer. Younger children are not recommended unless you plan to carry them the entire 4.6 mile round trip. The water is very cold on your feet at first, but you get used to it pretty quick and it gives you a nice rush of energy. Definitely a must, when it comes to hiking.
