The Cedar Falls area features a particularly beautiful waterfall setting and one of the most reliable falls in the park. A two and a half mile hiking trail leads through a dense stand of hemlocks, connecting the lower gorge of Old Man's Cave to Cedar Falls. But for those anxious to see this enchanting ravine without a long walk, Route 374 ties these two attractions together. From the parking area, a half mile loop trail guides visitors down sandstone and wooden stairs, and over footbridges to the falls area.
