Help Keep Your Trails Open!We are a community of Waterfallers, and you make a difference.

Have a small bag on hand. It is possible, due to the pandemic, that the trail you are going to visit will contain litter.

What better way to help our fellow Waterfallers than limit the amount of litter seen by the next Waterfallers to hike on the path!?
