This location leaves an opening to visit a couple local waterfalls, but can also be visited by itself because it is so picturesque! The hike is short and should be safe for all family members (including leashed doggies).
Since the Parksville Rail Trail is close, you could add this to a full days recreation, cooling your feet in the stream before continuing your days walk.
It should be noted that there is a “Little Beaverkill Falls” located somewhere on the stream but has not be surveyed by Dig The Falls at this time. A photo is shown in a historic postcard below.
