Arriving at Spirit Falls was no small adventure. My preparation to visit the waterfall began like so many others when I saw a photo of the cascade on Instagram and that’s where it ended. So when we completed Google’s directions and parked, we knew nothing about the place.
When we arrived, some fellow adventurers informed us that the trail was private property. Happy to avoid getting fined, we entered the forest away from the trailhead. After over an hour of searching we found the waterfall, but not without a fair amount of slipping along steep ridges and close calls.
It was well worth the treacherous hike, but a little more preparation would have gone a long way.
