this is a nice stroll near some other outdoors things like trees and a bush and some angry squirrels who weren't very nice to me. Avoid them.

Boulder Falls is so beautiful and just off the hwy. It is a very easy and very short trail to the falls!

No it is not open. There is no set date to reopen the trail. Too dangerous.
