The best way to experience Guide Falls is by first following the gravel road to the top entrance. After climbing down the staircase, you will be greeted by this cascade waterfall. The flow is best in the spring or after a rain. Then walk along the tree-lined trail parallel to the Guide River. The descent is scenic and easy. The path measures a short 1,050 feet. So even if you linger, your nature stroll will only take about 15 minutes.
