Know Before You Go: This path is narrow, steep, poorly marked and treacherous. The waterfalls are a bit off the beaten trail and dangerous to access. The park advertises a 70-foot cascading waterfall but it’s a very thin waterfall quite unlike the nearby Ricketts Glen Waterfalls. Length: 3 miles down to the valley floor and back Time: 2-3 hours Difficulty: Very difficult Terrain: Rock and dirt Dog-friendly: Kind of, but it’s very steep and treacherous. Kid-friendly: I would not recommend taking children on this trail.
The Turkey Path at Colton Point State Park descends 1.5 miles to the floor of the canyon. There are two waterfalls on the way. One is less than 1/4 mile down the trail where it splits from the Colton Point Rim Trail.
If you continue towards the canyon floor along the poorly-marked and VERY steep trail, keep an eye to the right for a shorter, wider waterfall.
I had to scramble down the side of the hill to get a view of it and would not recommend this approach. On the way down, I watched another hiker fall and grab a tree to keep from sliding down the hill. The risk of injury is greater than the reward for the hike. If you choose to do it, be sure to use other tools than the trail map to make sure you stay on the path such as a compass or navigational app.
