The trail is wide, easy to follow, relatively flat, and the perfect way to spend a beautiful afternoon.
Helton Creek is my favorite kind of falls – loud, imposing, stacked rock that rises into the sky, the kind of place that I could spend for hours, listening to the water as it plunges into the pool below. The white noise is captivating, and seems to help clear some of the static from day-to-day life.
This preserve is a wonderful way spend some time amongst nature without having to leave the island, and would be perfect to burn off some calories after a big lunch, or entertain the kids between events. It’s small enough to be manageable, but still offers plenty to see and do when the weather is nice.
